In the name of Love

In the name of Love

Their vision scorched me

Thousand soldiers of darkness

Of untruth their flag


Is this as it is

The sum of all our hardships

Walking on the knees


I roamed the deserts

My hair running its own way

Talks of centuries


My shadows cast light

In the silence of their screams

As the widow dreams


They hardened their hearts

In the name of freedom’s rings

As their chains tightened


Martial waverings

Their walks valleys of despair

As orphans huddled


The suns in me tire

Of the cycles of tales dire

Reinventing hope


The blind men will grope

Their hands panic stricken tools

Their hearts emptiness


Power’s not prowess

Only throne of loneliness

Rotten arm in glove


When I live again

Walk with me in the valleys

In the name of Love


Reading of the poem: 

heart of love rassouli

Kafartu – Dhafer Youssef

Soupir Eternel – Dhafer Youssef

In the name of Love – Dhafer Youssef
