Sorrow and sadness
Unhappy dark islands
For me, it's so sad
For you, you will be mad
Eternally wounded
Reality is scary
I feel like I'm going to carry
Nuclear missile in my hand
Go and stop me before I destroy the land!
Nomen Ben Slimene


No one understands
All these lofty trees and singing birds
This Earth is our Home
Understand it , hear it , love it as your mom
Reality is sadness
End of happiness
Jawaher Bel Hadj Hamada (first forms)


Bombs are everywhere!
Blood here and there
Corpses are near
We don't want to be here!
I don't find anyone who cares!
Children are scared!
Women are afraid!
We are so tired!
These are our words
We just wanna live in this world!

War and peace

Pain and sorrow
End dreams of tomorrow
And kill our freedom
Can't you stop , can't you give up
End the killing which scares
Men and women's nightmares
Allow me my old smile
Keep my dream a while
Even just for a short time
Rebuilding my simple rhyme.
Amine Ben Houria


For me it's a treasure like no other treasure
A family gives me great pleasure
My brothers , my sister , my father and my mother
I love them like fresh air in summer
Love is our daily food
You feel it is good

Like a field in spring
I like the family to sing
For me and you
Even when you are blue!

An attempt by EFL learners to write Arcostic poems.

Learning is the key
A lot of practising trust me
Normally , this will help you
Good pupils at languages you will be
Usually , listen more , write more and speak more
A good solution for you believe me
Great idea I'll tell you , too.
Everyday, many exercises you should do
So subjects will be easy , this is true !
