A Thought For Poets In Iran

Post by Eternum 1 » Tue Oct 27, 2015 10:50 am

It's a struggle for free expression in many places on earth although I find it most distressing when Poets are the targets of tyranny. Maybe it's because poetry comes mostly from the heart and is seldom calculating, power seeking or overtly egotistical.

So my thoughts are with these Poets languishing in a religious gulag called Iran.

This is what tyranny looks like. When one can simply not express themselves due to others hatred of freedom and love of power.
