Let Me Tell You Why - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

Let me tell you why

Want to know why I think
of the world long before my people?

Then listen:
Nearest city to my birthplace
Esfahan is a town in Iran.

I see it Miracle,
and believe DNA can prove
ancestors were born there.

Though ancient…very old
it sure was the base for those with arms

Later on was shelter, for Jews too
Jay City.

I believe Abraham passed by or walked through
with cousin, and Sara; sister-wife.

Time raced and
came Arabs and Islam

The city prospered once again
minarets, and the mosque, and Hammam
and much more, by Baha
and bridge was built by Georgian
and more things,
include the Armen.

Therefore world made my town
my nation.
So I must think of them before me;
and love them…

The role of governments
Elected, or enforced; is one thing:
“Invest in the people and science.”
