A Candid Portrait Of War

We are all vengeful creatures
Circulated by greed and flushed by pride
Blood that speaks in mother tongues
Screams of heritages and cradles fragmented maps
We see an eye to an eye, a throat to a throat, fear juxtaposed to fear
Never seeing their confluence in a broken kiss
We rarely see the center-field, the equilibrium
The other view, veiled by the incomprehensible
Walls that were erected in the shadow of Babel tower

[Hata Bildir]
