Don't be afraid O 'Neda' (In the memory of 'Neda agha soltan')

This poem is presented by me in memory of the pretty poor girl Neda agha soltan to her family, Iran and the world.
' Neda ' has been killed in 2009/06/20 in Tehran - Iran by a bullet on her chest in the crowds of 10th presidental election protests of Iran.
I saw the video. It was painful. When I was watching it, When she was going, I heared her music master (The old man in the video) was saying to her: ' Don't be afraid, Don't be afraid... '
And now I'm here to complete his sentence for you.

Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Don't be afraid of crowd
Of the cries or threats
Of the shouting very loud
Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Don't be afraid of the gun
Of the bangs of foolishness
Of the streets of Tehran
Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Don't be afraid in the pain
Of the bullets of grudge
Of the people come insane
Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Don't be afraid what you see
Of the angel of the death
Of travel, Just be free
Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Don't be afraid of going
Of the red of your blood
Of the color, It's Green
Don't be afraid o 'Neda'

Peace to the world

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
