Yusra Budraa (Peace School, London)

(2021) كوكبنا بين يديك

Our planet in your hand

Poem by Yusra included in her painting

You say what you don’t do
You claim that you love me
So why the killing
Why force people away from their homes
Why war
Why animal extinction
Do you say what you do not do
You laugh and you play
And you use my bounty
Whilst pain and sadness fill me
Shame on you for what you did is unforgivable
And you all say you you you
And yet none of you realise
Why do you say what you do not do
تتقولون ما لا تفعلون
تدعون انكم تحبوني
فلماذا القتل والتشريد
لمن يقطنني
لماذا الحروب لماذا
لماذا انقراض الحيوانات
أتقولون ما لا تفعلون
تضحكون تلعبون
تستخدمون خبراتي
و الألم و الحزن يملؤني
عار عليكم ما فعلتم عظيم
و الكل يقول انتم أنتم
