An evocative protest poem, where Anoucheka and her heart converse about a cruel world, for Different Truths.
Tell me, urged my heart Tell me why the world is so cruel
Wars wave their mighty flags at us Poverty pulses proudly Crimes carry their own grim smiles Diseases scare death away Rights riot against the repressed And Love loses its integrity
Tell me Urged my heart Why does everyone consider Their lives to be a blessing?
Pray, heart, Whispers my soul Be quiet Open your windows to accept life Open your windows to share of your compassion If the rest of the world suffers Pray Tend to them Help heal them And dry their tears Ease their bruises And Learn to live with submission Submission which you can turn into A lavish celebration That of life and its own power over us!
Ok sighed my heart! Ok, I shall do as you do will!
