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?
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
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
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.”
