Autumn at Home

Simon Darwish

Damascus, Syria


Autumn in my homeland is the loveliest time of the whole year
When autumn comes, my heart blooms like a flower
I walk among the trees and enjoy the tenderness of nature
Its beautiful colours are balm for my wounds


Simon Darwish (15)

came to Germany from Syria a year ago. His father has been living here for four years, and the rest of the family has stayed in Damascus. Simon loves to write poems. In this way he also wishes to improve his German. He wants to get his school-leaving certificate and dreams of becoming an actor.
