Born in Iraq
by Ali Salih Mohammad and Dr Hana Al-Bayyati

I was born in Iraq
I live in Iraq
I will die in Iraq.
No Matter what happens:
Death, or ruins
Blood, or explotions
Or different religions.
I write my poetry
On my own country.
We all agree
Our country
Would be free.
There will be no tree
Falling, no boundry
To rebuild our country.
Our country
Would be
A poem
In the realm
Of freedom.
Our wisdom
Would be our dome
In the shrine of freedom.
