Shaul Tchernichovsky

Laugh, laugh at all my dreams!
What I dream shall yet come true!
Laugh at my belief in man,
At my belief in you.

Freedom still my soul demands,
Unbartered for a calf of gold.
For still I do believe in man,
And in his spirit, strong and bold.

And in the future I still believe
Though it be distant, come it will
When nations shall each other bless,
And peace at last the earth shall fill.

    Just read Creed again after so many years, and boy it hits hard - "Laugh, laugh at all my dream!" Still gives me chills. A stark reminder to stay strong, believe in ourselfs and never loose hope. Love this poem.
