Once you came to me…
— poetry by Farnood Jahangiri

Once you came to me
And tricked me to give in
And you started to dig up
My land and you found
Almost by accident
My civilization lost.

Now I ceaselessly come to you
And beg you to give way
For me to start digging
Your mind solely to find
After countless diggings
My civilization lost.

Farnood Jahangiri is Baha'i' and Iranian, became a student of English at BIHE after being expelled from University in Iran, and has been been telling poetry since 15 years old: first in Persian and then in English.
