I’m not sure by what pain you are driven
To commit unspeakable crimes against humanity.
If I could dissolve your pain, I would.
But I don’t know the pain which has been
Eating away at your kindness towards others.
If there is any kind of reconciliation between dissenters,
Communication must take place.
Be it with soft-spoken words, through critical disputes,
Or ironical and satirical illustrations,
We need to be open-minded in our dialog.
