Monday Blessings: I'm Alive

Hello readers,

*A little over two years ago I wrote a poem with the same title, I'm Alive for the people in other countries. Today I write one for the people in my own country.

I'm grateful that I'm alive
while my brother and sisters
are dying,
getting killed
not just in other countries
but in my own country

I am their voice
as I am my voice
I will stand up for them

As we ask to not just be heard
but to be listened to
As we ask for a better life
a more protected life

I am not afraid
through my fear
I will smile and scream
I will make a change.

Love, Fida
