It’s Eid for them too!!! The Displaced Shias of Yemen

Updated on 12 March 2018

It's Eid for them too!!! The Displaced Shias of Yemen

The tremor in their voices,

 the desperation in their eyes,

 it doesn’t let me sleep,

the fading dignity of their lives.

Until yesterday they stood tall and sanguine

just like us.

A life, a living, a home, a family,

comfort and security, they had it all

just like us.

Never did the thought cross their minds

One day the world would see them as 

asylum seekers, refugees.

Today from us they need support and compassion

brotherhood indeed.

As we prepare to celebrate the proverbial sacrifice of Ibrahim

and its related Eid,

Let’s vow to sacrifice our vain desires and greed

and satiate an oppressed person’s dire need

On these special days of Zilhijja, together with our hands

let’s raise our souls too.

Let self-indulgence and extravagance come under the knife

and replace it by nobility and benefaction, an impetus for life.

Let’s be an instrument of God,

humans, whom even angels want to applaud.
