Thank You for today. Today is Friday and usually my Friday is happy and joyful because of the end of a week. But today is not this case. This culmination of the week news is the reason: “The Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, which has a special status within the region, were added as subjects of the Russian Federation following a referendum Sunday in the Black Sea region, which saw over 96 percent of voters in the region back the motion to leave Ukraine and rejoin Russia.”
Tonight I tell you a sad story about Ukraine, Russia and Crimea. Crimea’s fate is as sad as a story of a child in divorce.
My mother is Ukraine.
She is so beautiful and kind.
I love her scent and
Love to warm my nose
In a fox fur on her shoulders.
Crimea had been Ukraine for 23 years.
My father is Russia.
He is strong and powerful.
I remember our happy times
When we were together and
Playing in the war…
My dream to be together will never come true…
In “the best interest of a child”
I am away from my mother.
Yes, father, I am yours, but
I am mother’s too.
To free me would be the best decision
You have never allowed.
The price is I am dying,
The war is true, not game,
Of course, “in my best interest”.
I am really pessimistic about the situation in Ukraine. But the history is circle, the story is repeating. Nothing is new under the Sky. Sadness is a good facilitator of philosophical mood. Plato’s book, I think, is a good choice for weekend. Thank you for being with me.
