By Ahmad Al-khatat

I asked my parents

why the moon and sun

exist without a mouth,

and live with grief in their eyes

my father said

because mankind lies

to each other every day,

below the sincere sunshine

then my mother said

because mankind betrays

To each other quickly and

shamelessly under the moonlight

today, I am lonely

my parents are divorced,

they lied and betrayed me

and so I am a star by the raining clouds
