When, Poetry by Abdulkadir Abdulrahim

Genre: Relationship


We have been waiting,
Since when we know nothing
When we cannot even figure out what is wrong,
When we did not know whom to sue.

We have being waiting,
Watching and wondering…
About when are we going to change
And when is the game going to be over.

We kept quite
Seeing innocents’ life being quitted.
Seeing our children becoming orphan,
Also our young women becoming widow.

We kept quite
Closely end our finger as we bite.
Tolerating misconduct in the society,
As the government say nothing.

Please tell me…

When are we going to inhale the fresh air?
When are we going to stop having nightmare?
When are going stop seeing our vanished innocent brothers?

We lived under the umbrella of brotherhood
Different religion, different culture.
Rich and poor as well.

Yet nor peace alive,
Oh we need some ease,
Please let us breathe,
Please, please.
