DARFUR’S DREAM

ALT
Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) rebels ride on the front of a truck with a bullet-damaged windshield in South Darfur state: November 16, 2004
Wingless dreams
earthbound
but yet they sing

Ever present
behind my eyes…
something pleasant

Dreams
that are
long overdue

Someday
they will come true
Always longing

Always dreaming…
of the day in this land
… if to come it can

… when Darfur blood no longer
dries upon the grasses
… of the Sudan…
