Mehraneh Hosseini

* Star *

When there is no space to bear out
A politician with enormous clout!
The one who calls you a litter lout
Try not to show how
Misfortune we are now
Try not to find a way
Come on stay home and lay
Try not to find money
Money is in his pocket honey
Try not to ask why
Their salaries become high & high
Not to make your mind busy
Unless they'll call you crazy
Only because your hair is frizzy
They'll give you a *star *, how easy!
You took the wind out of our sail
This term, you Mr. fail
Excuse me should I go to jail! ?
Oh darling your life is in a hail
Or it will be hanged by a hair
You could be dead for all they care
Who can say it's unfair?
Today you are at home
Being in your own room
Tomorrow when you wake up
You have to go and break up
You are now too far
Somewhere behind a bar
It gave me a nasty jar
It seems I hit the wall
Gratitude to insane one
Do you know what I mean Hun?

    Good write Mehraneh, a strong voice arrowing the air to be heard. No matter how deep it was never get drown and for a star to bright at darkest space it will always high no matter what. They can deny the presence of light but they totally blind if they are not with it...keep writing Meharaneh! and thanks for inviting_Unwritten Soul

    Try to find a way
    and never smile in 9th Dey!
    you know a lot of things and feel many thing its good, but try focus on a special things that is believable for foreigners not for Persian because for us its our every day life.

    A pessimistic note is had throughout the poem. A moneymonger is mentioned here who only thinks of him being a strict self centred person ignoring other. T he speaker (poet) is badly victimized by this selfish person.The poem is a well composed piece.

    Great job. Make no mistake, you are quite talented in poetry. Your only enemy is lack of self-confidence, so don't ever let it get the better of you. Keep up writing poems of your own. Translation is good, especially for making the world familiar with our great culture, but speaking your own mind and writing your own poetry is something else. Let your powerful feelings overflow (as Wordsworth suggests) and the true magic of poetry will happen. Good luck.

    Mehrahneh, i love reading poems by people like you who reach out at random to people like me just hoping to find an ear, a person who will listen to your voice in the sky, the ether, the vast expanse of the internet. Hello!
    I love your poem. The English grammar is not great but the meaning is greater than the lack of grammar and that is more important to me. Well written and keep writing. I know from my first poem how good it it feels to have a positive response. You have earned this one for a great poem.

    Dear Poet, I am specifically calling you a poet because you are feeling humble to call yourself a poet in the poem. To be different is a quality of human. If everything is common the beauty in the world will extinguish like a rose plant in a desert. your poem is thought provoking and the central idea of a poem is to generte thoughts in the mind of reader. congrats.

    your poem has a good rhyme
    and strong meaning. I think
    you`ll be a good poet. Every poet
    writes his or her soul thoughts
    to introduce the world around
    us
