One life

Eliza Segiet

Eliza Segiet

(Translated Ula de B)

A human is unusual?
The creator of hatred and love,
wars and peace,
acceptance of difference and its intolerance.

Is a skin color, faith
a reason,
for aggression to take away the future,
crash the dreams?

Who forbids to think,
to distinguish good from much worse,
whose name is the evil.

Even if the seeming tradition 
commands something else,
it is worth to open the heart
to love and understanding.
