    This world has a cycle that won't break until we near the end of time, but inshallah there will come a time when things will be peaceful again, even if just for a little while. The earth will have a short break and blessings will show themselves by the will of God again, just like they used to in times before.

    Excellent work, my brother.

    This is truly raw and emotional. I have no words to say other than you did a great job portraying everything.

    I have been saying it for awhile but this world is going to pot and I don't like it. It's the children growing up right now that I feel sorry for because they have no hope with all this that has been happening recently. It makes my skin crawl that people can just go out and kill in cold blood.

    I believe the only world peace we will have is just before the world ends, whenever that may be.

    Take care and keep as safe as you can, Em

    Those first two lines caught my attention and held it. I tried to imagine just an iota of what it must be like to live in a war zone. These two lines are perfect. Simplistic yet very real, a real sense of hopelessness. As a piece of poetry it is raw, but it works. There is tension, there is drama and there is anguish. It is also very current and extremely topical. I love it when poetry is relevant, a 21st century poem in every sense. Great write and an easy pick this week for 10 points.

    Judge Comment:

    Abed has written a chilling poem, about the true and utter sadness that is going on in Aleppo.

    I was heartbroken from start to finish with this piece.
    Abed, elegantly writes with the sadness and sorrow of his words. Intertwining Mothers garden and the dying of flowers.

    I'm crying now while writing this comment. That is how powerful this poem is. 10 points- Hands down!
