Wounded

Fatima Chouli

Berlin, Germany

 

I am alone – alone in a foreign country.
Alone, where no one is with me.
I feel bad – bad, because I have no one by my side.
I see alien looks – looks that attack me.
I see friends – friends that I would like to have.
I see handsome boys – boys that I would like to talk to.
It wounds me to see them happy.

 

Fatima Chouli (15)

Fatima’s family came to Germany from Palestine before she was born. She grew up in Berlin. Her parents’ home is foreign to her, but she often feels alone in Berlin, too. She loves drawing and going to boxing training. By writing poems she can express her feelings.
