Freedom fighters


My brain needs a break

From the bad news, the good news

All the emotions that they evoke

All the expectations and hopes

But they don’t get a break

They are in the streets everyday

They are sending their videos every night

They cannot afford to rest or take a break

The work of a freedom fighter is not for the faint of heart

They sacrifice, they get injured, they get arrested

They raise their voices for change

I can take a break here from the news

When it becomes overwhelming 

But they can’t 

My hat is off to them

  1. Lida joon, we had a report from the National that we as Baha’is should not post anything about the events in Iran!! Also I think the curly hair suits you much better. It makes you much younger. Mom
