The Red Ribbon
SummaryHidden Hope Deep in my chest, scars exist in scores; from beneath pale skin, fears unveil themselves and form a sobbing voice.
And when the scale of the battle within breaches my limit of endurance, I choose to walk among the crowd. I am looking for a celebration in the arms of others – a mending – through the spirit of human love.
I carry hopes… and I carry these hopes in the pouch of my heart. Could someone come forward to embrace me, unburden me, and ease the brunt of my bruising? You, maybe?
Abdul Samad Haidari
The Red Ribbon describes the life of a refugee. The poetry showcases the survival instincts that have pushed the author to walk barefoot over sharp-edged rocks through many terrifying valleys, and to sail across black tidal seas to seek peace and hope in a country that has offered him a sanctuary of human love – Indonesia.
