Painting: Yael Hofri / At least 520 protesters, including 68 children have been killed during the Iran´s latest unrest in the last four months, and more than 100 protesters risk being executed by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
TWO MEN´S EXECUTION
They locked the doors and left.
We got alone with the memories of
deception and deceit of those who
hijacked our country.
“Oh, dad, they gave me my sentence.
They will execute me for expressing
my opinion. For telling them that we need
a fair referendum.
Oh, dad, do not tell mom that they are going
to hang me.”1
Oh, no dad, tell her, let mom know.
I know that our mothers are strong enough
to transform this sorrow into fighting spirit
for turning these barbaric rulers into nothingness.
These doors are not going to be locked forever
We will see the God of rainbow.
“I like the God of rainbow”2
We are going out into liberty
and we are going to experience again
“The pretty hair of the woman in wind”
The beauty of life
The sweet scent of freedom”3
Oh, my beautiful mother,
Oh, my beautiful sister and brother,
Oh, my beautiful love,
“Oh, my beautiful baby daughter Hannaneh,
I wish I could see you, one more time, before
these heartless killers destroy me.
Oh, I get a lump in my throat and can't speak.”4
I know that I will not see the dawn
I love you all.
“I will Always Love You.”5
“Do not cry for me on my grave.
Do not read and listen to the holy book on my funeral.
Just read poetry and listen to music.”6
Because I despise their faith
“We despise your belief.
We curse your religion.”7
“And promise me, oh, promise me
that you too will dance for me
the day of the liberation.”8
You asked me: Do you see “The Wind in My Hair”?9
Oh, ja, I have already seen the wind in your hair.
I already see the wind in your hair my love.
But these heartless monsters,
these judges of evil,
this leader of evil,
these protectors of evil,
will be captured forever
behind locked doors of
their wicked hearts.
