Artist's Description

Just laundry – Syria

Would like you to share this wonderful piece of writing which has been composed by young poet Whatkindofgod inspired by one of my pictures displayed on an interesting blog (Stories without words is a web site launched by fair redbubbler Roka where anybody can write stories, poetries or any kind of comments on pictures she has chosen. A very nice place for creativity !). I was really struck by the strength of the words written by this 19 years old incredibly talented guy, from a picture which appearently is far from drama… Please have a look at his work !

In search of a wild and innocent thing.
by Whatkindofgod

The blue tract is silent, still and fading
We, though a small band of brothers
March inspired, beneath a loving sentry
In search of a wild and innocent thing

Through wide seas of malachite bayonets
Across hard barren lands and burnt deserts
Every horizon brought a more menacing scene
Whilst in search of a wild and innocent thing

As long and far as our traipse would go
Into alien lands and countries unknown
When set upon as though we were thieves
In search of a wild and innocent thing

Now hung from the sky, we swing with the wind
We band of brothers together died at each others feet
We found a reason to die but a better reason to live
We found ourselves again; a wild and innocent thing
