The Anniversary


Two years passed
Was it yesterday when I witnessed the loss of my country?
No country to go back to
Dreams will not come true

Two years passed

Was it yesterday when we witnessed the torture and the rape?
The horror will stay in our memory
We will tell our grandchildren about it
Will they forget? we hope not

Two years passed
Iraqi and American kids were born
Some would have parents, others don�t
Some would remember them, others don�t


Two years passed
Iraqi women and Americans lost their beloved ones
Some are still mourning, others don�t

Some will move on with their lives, others won�t

Two years passed
Iraqi civilians were killed
Some American feels ashamed but most don�t
Some believe the lies, but others don�t


Two years passed
The depleted uranium is still covering the Iraqi cities
Americans are inhaling clean air
But Iraqis don�t

Two years passed
Palm trees are still standing high
The killing and the torture continues
The humiliation and hatred continues
The lies continue
The destruction continues


Would you celebrate this anniversary? Most people won't
