13-year-old Iranian Shirin Al Ansari shares with us today one of her short poems that came from the heart. Poetry is Shirin’s safe haven where she expresses her feelings and thoughts, and flies far away to a fantasy world of her own.

Enjoy!

Lies

I tell you I’m ok

I tell you I’m fine

But I’m just good at telling lies

I’ve said all my goodbyes

Now it’s time for me to fly

To a place far far away

Where I can scream and cry day by day

I will stay like this forever

This misery and pain will end never

“All the works of man have their origin in creative fantasy. What right have we then to depreciate imagination?” (Carl Jung)

We only celebrate and completely live our human nature when we play, let go of our fears and constraints, and set our creative imagination free. Do you think suppressing our potential, questioning our abilities and disbelieving in ourselves is a fair payback to humanity?
