Shahla Latifi



In darkness

Across the shallow thoughts

When the savage of impatience wakes me

I see

The impalpable ghost of despair


My heart cries

The happy and agile child in me cries:

I want to know what is through the light

I want to know another feeling

I want to know that behind this darkness a heart waits for me



Everything that exists in me

The passion

The beauty

Functions with implacable courage

And the lightness of my heart

Bright as the crystal moon

Through the fog of hopelessness


Shahla Latifi
