Five Lines Poem by Nazim Hikmet

Five Lines

Rating: 3.5

To overcome lies in the heart, in the streets, in the books
from the lullabies of the mothers
to the news report that the speaker reads,
understanding, my love, what a great joy it is,
to understand what is gone and what is on the way.

Good post. In these day, when lies dancing with colorful feathers to make us convinced as truth, understanding by love to the common peoples life could help us to differentiate the truth behind the mask!

Some poems manage to talk about truths without sounding pedantic - - this truth reads in a very poetic way.
