I am a 16 year old Persian boy living in London and missing Iran. I wrote this poem, which I think sums up Iran's effect on all of us.
Welcome to Iran. Over the sublime splendour of ancient lands, lies the perpetual perfection of the Ruins at Persopolis. Hidden deep beneath the ground, beneath the hustle and bustle of urban life, vanished through time are the Golden Gargantuan of the Gardens of Babylon. Dilate your eyes as the tremendous irradiance of the sun reflects of the luminous mosques of Esfahan and grabs you in its powerful vice. Free your mind as you are transported to a land where the ecliptic esteem of the ancient empire remains in every mind of every person, eternally. A land where the sun is truly gold. Open your eyes and feel your heart beat as you witness true Persian Delight.
