Yemen is about watching life wither and turn to dust in front of your eyes, not because your hands cant keep hold of it but because it is obliterated by bombs, shattered by shrapnel, eviscerated by blast after blast of hate and vindictiveness.

In Yemen life is about resistance even when every fibre of your being is screaming to relinquish hope and succumb to grief.

In Yemen saying good bye is a daily occurrence, kissing your child's face, mingling your tears with their still-warm blood and wishing your breath could enter their body and bring them back to you one last time.

In Yemen the dust lives in your eyes and your mouth, grinding against your teeth like the gnawing hunger in your belly.

In Yemen hope is a crumb of stale bread or getting to the front of the queue for clean water.

In Yemen life has become a fight to retain every shred of dignity when your existence has been reduced to tattered remains of what you dreamed it would be.

In Yemen life is waking up every day to the cacophony of war, the orchestra of death and knowing you are alone.

In Yemen, resistance is all that is left because dying is better than kneeling before the snarling dogs of war.

In Yemen what is great and good in Humanity is a force that will never be subdued, this is Yemen and Yemen will prevail.
