Masoom - "innocence"
A walk through pristine redwoods - fern, and crystal clear rivers
hear gentle sounds of a breeze swaying tall trees
Overlooking a deep blue ocean of peace - shimmering,
and a few wisps of clouds
crashing waves and a symphony of sounds - so pure
A newly born baby girl, so full of wonder, and innocence - masoom
Have you seen the redwoods torn down? And rivers clogged -
with beer cans, and toxic waste?
The ocean of peace used for battleships of war a few thousand miles away?
The symphony: massive exploding bombs indiscriminate slaughter.
And the newly born baby girl - buried alive - do you hear her cry?
This is the story of Karbala --- thus far. Ya Abbas, Ya Hussein...
A few tears, may our hearts soften - inshallah.
