1000 days in prison

I will shout from mountains and through valleys.
I will tell the four winds.
Blades of grass by my doorstep will hear my cry
then soon his name
will cascade off jungle leaves.
I will not be silent,
even the desert sand and the ocean tides
will know of the cruelty to Raif Badawi.
At night when you look at the stars,
King Salman, know that the universe
listened
and is watching.
