Yellow Ribbon

Dalva Agne Lynch

There´s a yellow ribbon tied to my door.
It says to the World
that my son is at War.
There´s a yellow ribbon
tied to the World´s heart.
There´s a yellow ribbon on the door
of all the opressed
the hungry children
the women emprisioned behind veils
the girls raped in prison.
There´s a yellow ribbon on every wall of separation
visible ones and invisible ones.
There´s a yellow ribbon soiled with black oil
on the shacks of Palestine
on the plantations of Eretz Yisrael.
There´s a faded yellow ribbon
on the boats fleeing Havana.
There´s a yellow ribbon on every man
who still has a conscience.
On the people marching in South American streets
fearing for their future.
On the people filling churches
filling temples, answering grounds.
On the people curved through the night over books
while working the whole day for the daily bread.
Yes, there´s a yellow ribbon
tied to the World´s heart.
Someday - I hope it comes soon!
I´ll take down the yellow ribbon from my door.
Some day - and there´ll be weeping and gnashing of teeth!
all yellow ribbons will be taken down
from every door in the World.
On that day - with songs and dance and laughter
the yellow will sparkle only in the sun´s rays
and in the wings of butterflies.
The children and the women and the girls
and all who are burdened and heavy laden
will be dressed in all colors.
And men - those who imprisioned the World
behind yellow ribbons
will be exiled in yellow flames.
Someday...
Oh, how I wish this day would come...

***********************************************

I´ve written this poem in 2007, after reading in the Paper the shocking news that Iran had made a new Law concerning women, forbidding them to sing.

The Iranian woman was forbbiden to sing

Dalva Agne Lynch


The Iranian woman
was forbidden to sing.
She wasn´t forbidden to cry out
to moan
to groan.
These are her rights
- her only rights.
But she was forbidden
the lullaby
the nursery rhymes
and every song of love
for the Iranian woman's love
was also forbidden.

Now
they want to forbid even the birds
of announcing the dawn.
After all
their songs could awaken wings
-- the dark
silent wings
of the Iranian woman.
And in spite of her silence
she could learn
to fly.

Dear Mrs. Dalva

Greetings from Baghdad !

I just read your Poems and you touch and motivate me deeply , believe me I wish that every person in Iraq could read it, and as a reply to your poem I write :

We have the same yellow ribbons ,its tighten to our hands ,
we have also black ribbon which covers our eyes ,
make us feeling desperate while coloured life is just behind ,
swindled to be blind ,
living with fears from every thing and every sound that seem to be wear ,
I hear thousand of persons crying from pain and fear ,
just like hundreds of bullets inside my heart ,
I should defend so I take a thick stick and start beating here and there ,
breaking every thing that was there ,
I hurt and get hurt in return ,
suddenlly the black ribbon fall
I find myself in destroyed place
I look around its familiar its reminds me of a place which I used to belong
what's happen what's gos wrong ???
why Millions of people wear black ribbon on ?!!

Hello! I am going on age 66 in March. Each day for me is a gift. You see, I'm on life support, dialysis, no match for a kidney.Really don't know what the next moment will bring, but I have been giving with my life's work since the age of 14, offering support, assistance for youth, women, children, men as a non-profit for victims of violence, trauma, cross-disabilities, life support since 1962. I not only know very well about these issues but have gone through these issues as well spiritually, physically, mentally, psychologically, from extremes of abuse, extremes of torture, starvation, buried alive, as well as a family with issues of genocide. It is all the reason for the two remaining projects of my life I am holding this May 24, 2009 8am an invitation for women, children, men, elderly to join together as citizens, youth of the globe in our 'Peace Walk For Freedom, Rights, Justice, 'inclusion and access'. We know in the world today there are many being disabled, short and long-term, as well incarcerated, for the most innocent of issues,given life sentences, etc. As lives on life support, disabled, or with compounded disabilities, we cannot be seen as silent or that we can't offer our voices against any/all of these above issues. It is why we are calling all lives to walk with us, show your support directly with or with out a disability, etc. Walk for a loved one unable to leave home, bed, or because of being oppressed,disabled, murdered, incarcerated as they are throughout the globe. This year we have chosen to remember Tibet. 'Walk For Tibet' See Facebook for our entrance for our Peace Walk or write, mhonainternational@gmail.com. We would love to have you, or yours walk for a loved one from anywhere on the globe. Don't allow a disability or being on life support stop you from being recognized or speaking out. Join with us in May, Please! God Bless You! Please share our message every where. Tatiana
