70 million

My words has fade away,
The beauty within writting poems,
Has lost my ways,
Sadness walks in my way,
Tears run in my face,
Feeling down here and there,
Depressed night by day,
Wishing I can change things in an instane,
Wishing to be a real superman,
Wishing to save my people in my country,
It really hurts me deep inside my heart,
To see young and innocent people die,
For freedom we never had,
70 million people in Iran,
Struggle for 30 years,
Protesters every where,
Around the world we live in today,
They say,"United Kingdom pay more attention"
People see the news from Iran,
How come no body is a leader in this world?
Why is everybody scared?
To make the first move?
Why can't be just over,
I pray to God and his powers,
To give my people: hope, freedom etc.
To live in this earth with joy and happiness.

    My dear poet friend, If everyone would agree to stop fighting at the same time, we would have world peace. They have had cease fires for Christmas and other holidays. If they can do it for one day, why not for every day? Every man woman and child must look to God to see His desire for all of us to love one another. I think that GREED is the root of the problem and JEALOUSY is a close second. So many people want more more more... more than they need. It's complex. Let's keep praying. Love, Dane

    What it's happening in your Country is terribly sad, Shirin. But, there must be another solution...war is the worst one. GOD bless us. Ruben.
