As They Were in Prison People Were Their Voices

On April 1, 2012, countries all over the world protested 10,000 days of imprisonment of the seven innocent Bahai men and women around the world. It reminds me of the poem I wrote a couple years back for them :

You stand tall
Like an everglade
It does not matter
What they throw
Daisies grow in sidewalks

The more they lie
The brighter your mighty orbs are
The more they fear
The stronger your love
which blooms like stormy seeds
Rising in unknown lands
Falling from the heavens
Like confused stars

You do not hear their malice
Only the calls of the faithful
Who knock on doors,
Tell their friends
Who arise in celestial armies

You feel the pulse of it
And it cannot dim you
With their filth
We see you, your pure souls piercing through the darkness
They try to touch you
But you are no longer of this earth
you are a far cry in the heavens
