Poem: For The Sake of Humanity

By Mali Mostoufi

 

May our Persian New Year,

Last forever.

May heaven celebrate it even.

 

May we worship the light of the Sun,

Rather to live in the Darkness,

This man-made color on  Earth.

 

Born we are to be Free,

Happy, with Love in our hearts too.

 

 Who initiated hatred and wars?

And why dragged we are in both?

--Time and again. --

 

May we be free from evil.

Let us open our hearts,

To one another.

 

May the Persian New Year,

Re-make us again:

To be citizens of this word.

 

Let us sing the song from a prophet of Love:

 

"Thanks for the human heart by which we live,

Thanks for its tenderness, its joys, and fears;

To me the meanest flower that blows, can give:

Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears."   *

 

May Persian New Year,

Show us the way to care:

For our humanity.
