(This poem is about an image of a letter you’d leave in the crib to explain the political world to a child)
To my child not yet born,
I hope forever you will stay warm.
I will tell you all that I’ve learned
In 22 years,
For maybe, it will save you some tears;
The flag is dripped in blood
So away from it we fled.
We drank for peace,
And drowned in beliefs that darkened our deeds.

To our kids we taught selfish thoughts;
Saying it is for God Almighty,
An illusion of Glory,
In truth, that is the entire story.
In the name of Freedom, we conquered many souls
And locked them in towers of gold.
We fled away from simplicity
The core of all happiness and ecstasy.
Our hearts got harder than stone
We forgot those with whom we shared the bread and built Rome.
