How can I sing

By Poriya Moazzami

What can I sing
Where can I play
What should I read
That I haven't read...
What tears should I cry
When there is so much pain
What rubble should I pick
When there are so many souls
Which heart should I heal
When there are so many to touch
What house should I build
When there are so many tents
What should I eat
When so many starve
How can I love my mother
When there are so many without
How can I fight my tears
When there is so little time
How can I refuse to see
When my eyes are addicted
How can I refuse to listen
When the sound is so loud
Where do I get the strength
When they need it the most
How should I live
When there is Bam!
