Alternate Love…

When they stop
showing the films I love,
I will watch the play of colors
in a butterfly’s wings

When they stop
making the songs I love,
I will listen to the call of the cuckoo
to her mate

When they stop
talking in my language,
and when all their words
sound foreign to me,
I will talk to the silence
of this sky

When they stop
being as they were born
to be, I will love that hidden part
of them that although little,
still exists

When they follow
the hatred, and harm
the innocent,
I will take up my sword
and fight till my last,
against them,
each one of them…
