IN EVERY LANGUAGE
In what language do children cry,
In what language do they smile
Crying has one meaning in every language
Chinese, English, Turkish…
Maybe a little child-like.
Crying your heart out,
My beautiful child
In what language is to make on cry?
Starting from the slaves and captives
Up to the bards of our times…
At interrogations, in torture houses?
The bans that forbid
Loving, thinking, working
Living fittingly to the age
Not only shall be removed from the constitutions
Shall be expelled from dictionaries as well
No good lies ,n forcing!
Even if it’s abard, in his lines
Forcing us to make people cry,
It’s neither bart nor humanlike, not civilized
