Rose Heart

Sarah Oheed

Babylon, Iraq


Yarin and Gasma are small but beautiful
I feel my village in my soul
My family around me gives me confidence

The rose is red and wonderful
Like the heart of my mother
There are thorns on the rose that hurt
They remind me of her tears


Sarah Oheed (14)

fled from Iraq to Germany with her family four years ago. She attends the Hector Peterson School, loves roller skating and music. She wrote poems at her youth art school Fri-X Berg because she loves poems and because for Sarah they possess their own feeling that they hold within themselves.
