Eid-al-Adha




Eid is a day of sadness
And pain
And celebration
That despite pain
We love
And in the face of persecution
We love more
And that is victory
Over oppression
That is freedom
In our hearts
For love can never be chained
And a broken body
Gives birth
To the strongest heart of all

~Jamila Hanan
