مسالم علي

(salaam Ali)
In you we find our selves.
Our humanity.
Our vesper,
Our evening air.
Our refreshment.

مسالم علي (salaam Ali)
Our wonderful planet earth.
Our rock revolving
Our southern forests
Our jewel Tasmania
Our hope

مسالم علي (salaam Ali)
Forgive me
I do not have your courage
therefore
I am free
and you in prison

مسالم علي (salaam Ali)
tell me Ali, my brother,
how must I write?
My eyes glisten, my fingers pause
tell me Ali
what I can say?

Ali, … salaam (علي مسالم)

[Peace = Salaam].
