We no longer

See our reflection

In the eyes

Of our brothers and sisters.


We no longer

Remember the days

Of tilling soil

Under the Anatolian sun.


We no longer

Know how to mark time,

Nor can our feet find

The path connecting me to you.

    Dystopian fiction is closer to reality than ever it feels.

    Sad because it's true, but beautiful for the same reason.

  • Oooo, this was so profound and poignant! Loved it so much!
