Poem: Without Love

The recent tragic deaths of four Muslim Canadians have hit us all hard as a country. None of us, however, can imagine the grief of their surviving family member. In his new poem “Without Love”, M.Y.A. Writer explores this unimaginable pain, as well as the age-old battle between unity and division.


A child now lives without his Mother 

I look to mine and wonder

She wears the garments of a Muslim woman with honor 

I fear for her and wonder 

What would it have been like to be without my Mother

Tears fall from my eyes as I wonder

That child will not have to 

That child will be without her 

That child will only know that hatred robbed him of what was most sacred:

His Mother 

His Mother

His Mother

I look to the years of misguided hatred

To the years of media and politicians trying to combine two words that did not fit

Muslim and Terrorist 

As if it was not mostly Muslims dying to it

So I thought I should go on and say it:

Hatred makes us all a victim 

Jewish, Muslim, Christian, or Other

Or the colour we see on one Another

In the end it truly doesn’t matter

We all look the same when buried 

The earth embraces us all like we’re married.

And to that young boy still alive I would like to say:

I’m sorry

This world is cruel but there is still love

One day I hope it can show you enough.
