Persian Soul This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


My pure people
Suffered from history’s mistakes
Their pulse in the hands of rulers
But still proud, blue-blooded people,
Pride in their outstanding history
Still hopeful, waiting for their dazzling future
Their soul is my mind.
My colorful homeland,
My holy temple, Persia,
Like a proud cat sitting on the map.
Hunters looking thirsty for a fist of its soil
Afraid of my gaze
Because I’m still here, still alive and vigilant
Watching out for its enemies,
Because I need it,
Its soil is my vein and its oceans my blood,
Yes, this kingdom is my body,
And I’m its soul.
