I dedicate this poem to Ehsan Fattahian and all the youngsters murdered by IR

English translation of a poem written in the 80′s, at the times of military dictatorship in Turkey. How relevant to Iran…
(Written by Gülten Akin, one of the most influential poets in Turkey today, and a co-founder of the Human Rights Organization in Turkey)

GROW UP

Grow up, and your father will,
Grow up and
He will buy you sufferings.
Grow up, and your father will
Grow up and
He will buy you indigences
Grow up and your father will, grow up and
He will buy you endless unemployments, starvations
Grow up and
Grow up and your father will buy you
Oppressions, tortures
Handcuffs, arrests, dungeons he will buy you
Grow up and
When you grow up and be seventeen
Grow up and your father will buy you
Executions.

GÜLTEN AKIN
