A Simple Stance and Refusal to Dance with Stupidity

A tender heart is capable of what? A warm light in the coldest and darkest moonless night; An embrace and refusal of playing the arrogant and smart; I see but then what? A harmony of rain droplets carefully descending everywhere around touching our cheeks offering more of life and wiping out tears of deception; I see! What more? A reminder that pain is just a drill among the drills of life targeted towards our weakness and fragility and meant to make us feel strong and learn a daunting lifelong lesson. I see but then also what? A tender heart is capable of courage Like a noble soldier Deciding to turn down an invitation of death. A candid heart beating to life refusing to join dancing with death and unwilling to fall in the trap of taking desire for love. - Chokri Omri (Tunisia, 2021)
