and I remember that I told to myself,
he looks exactly like my little bro
they got the same eyes, the same smile but mostly they have the same way to walk into a room.
So you can picture it, imagine that something in the way they walk that says “I’m a cool kid and I know it, nothing will reach me, I’m unreachable”
My little brother walks like he owns the world and everything is worth laughing at.
Zaid walks like that too.
He walks like that into the camp, he laughs like this into
But the scars on Zaid’s body scream: I’ve been reached already.
if all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights,
How come my brother and Zaid’s lives
Are so different that one has almost every rights,
When the other
just spend 2 years of his life parked into one camp or another
While Everyone should have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion,
Zaid family and friends have been persecuted for their beliefs and opinions,
And when if everybody has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
How come Zaid had to leave his homeland and have been moved again against his will already?
Zaid is gone, he left yesterday
But not before he came to the office to say,
Goodbye my friend, I’m not sure we will see each other again,
Oh,I wish I had just one more minute to tell him…
I’m not sure which part of Greece, he will “visit” this time,
But I’m sure there is no mountain he would not climb,
To finally achieve his goal and lead all his family
to the promise land of Germany…
