(Referring to my own state, while watching the bloody scenes in Libya – in which precious human lives are being lost because of a relentless tyrant’s greed and might.)


I am alive.
I am safe.
I am well.
I watch the TV.
I read newspapers.
I get my hours of nourishment.
I get my hours of rest.
Can I feel the situation of those,
Who are dying, suffering:
In the war zones?
I keep repeating to myself,
‘You are a hypocrite,
Who carries on,
Mumbling images of empty words.’
