Ali Zay Speaks


Looking for the way of life,

Fading through the light,

Parents living in the dark,

Separated because of time,

Trying to rediscover,

The shine of the cover,

On the face of my mother,

The walk with my brother,

The touch of a lover,

Bloodshed like no other,

I don’t wanna be none but what I am,

Not separated by clans,

Or trapped like clams,

I wanna be free,

Weightless in the sea,

Just my mother to be pleased,

Held back by what we left back,

Some refuse to forget that,

And then clap,

Ignorant, arrogant, set back.
