Sleep Aylan Sleep

Sleep Aylan sleep,

peaceful eternal sleep.

Because the world has failed you,

humanity has failed you.

Your own people didn’t gave you refuge,

left you to die in deluge.

You should have lived a beautiful life,

grown as strong individual.

But the lust of power and money,

dreadful and corrupt politics,

has taken away your dreams,

your desire to live a happy life.

Now you are in heavenly abode,

with no fear to engulf you day and night,

no border to cross seeking refuge,

no sanctions to be impose upon you,

no rules and law to follow.

Tell God to grant peace in this world,

and other child’s fate be like yours.


(A tribute to Syrian kid, Aylan Kurdi died on the shore of Turkey seeking refuge)
