My Tears

Ehsan Sehgal

O God
I cannot stop
My tears
If I see if I hear
If I read that the people
Who have the feeling
To feel
The pain of others
They are not capable
For helping the needy ones
And they are capable
Who have not the feeling
To feel
The pain of others
What is the division
Within the same human
O my God
When will that finish
The unjust division
Imposed by ugly ones
When will rise
The happy days
For those
Who wait for your mercy
Your wonder
O God
I cannot stop
My tears.
