Rest On, Little Angel!

It’s a gory image, but I will post all the same. I have tears streaming down my face and a lump in my throat!

You didn’t have to die like this.
You didn’t have to end like this.
You were supposed to blossom into a promising adult.
The choice your parents made was to embark on this dangerous journey,

To give you a peaceful life

Or stay in Syria and, still get shot down.
You see either ways, a risk had to be taken.
I am sorry little one; it ended for you like this.
Now you are at peace,

Free from this catastrophe called life.
You are no longer a victim.
Rest on little angel!
For every child affected by war,

May the hands of GOD protect and shield you!

  1. The image of the small boy – felt my heart ripping apart. Where is our humanity heading?
    And the way you have written, truly brought tears to my eyes – gave me a choking sensation.

    May his soul rest in peace.

  2. I want many things in life: bigger house, better career, lux handbag…. But when read stories like this, I feel so grateful. At lease I have a safe place to build a family…
    Hope we all live with gratitude.
    Hope this little boy went to a happy place.

  3. I see the face of my son in every little boy and girl. How can people abuse, neglect and murder children!? It broke my heart when I read about this little boy from Syria (Aylan Kudri) who drowned along with his 5 year old brother, and mother while trying to escape from Syria to find a safer solace in Greece!
