Genocides: The Eyes On The Sky And The Feet Anchored By Love - Poem by Atef Ayadi

The fear
You want to be funny
And a friendly lovely
And you throw off your fear
Behind as you are trying
To be that creature
Funny creature
You started to see fear as a funny word
In a funny phrase
In a funny talk
In a funny language
As happy and young as
The English language now.

Love affair
Off the fear
Off the air
With and without your ear
'Le Fer',
Le feu, et

Des Bizoues ziw Like Zooo
ou ou! Oh! OH OH! AN In On www
www www

You did all
You did your best
Without fear

You are busted!
Despite taking off the fear from your ear

And now the fear
Takes off you and over you
And does not leave in you
Any flares
Any fairness, and
Any trace of the original fear.

You are created your own genocide
You are the first one to fall.
And it does not matter for you
If someone else is falling with you too.
That it is the fun of it! .

You think
That something is not right
As you want it to be
After your heart
At the speed
Of light.
