My World

“My world is full of beauty, 
but you avert your eyes. 

My world is full of light, 
but you only worship the dark. 

My world is filled with song, 
but you exalt silence. 

My world is filled with delight, 
but you cut throats that ring with laughter. 

My world is adorned with exquisite art, 
but you smash sculptures, 
destroying ancient civilisations. 

In my world, 
people rejoice with one another 
and share each other’s burdens, 
but you only preach vanity and greed. 

What do you know of courage? 
What do you know of resilience? 

My world is so vast, 
it welcomes even you— 
for your drop of hatred 
will always be absolved 
in our ocean of love.”

Kamand Kojouri
