The Rules – A Poem
Written by Eliza Segiet
Translated by Ula de B.

It might not be easy
to suppress prejudices regarding:
– a nation,
– a different skin color, or
– a faith other than one’s own.

It might not be easy,
– in the name of instilled principles –
to refrain from hate,
orfollowing through on death sentences,
because someone tells you to
or because we ourselves think
we have the right to be harbingers
of harm.

It’s worth it to
think about the meaning
behind unworthy deeds;
To create in yourself
love and tolerance,
To replace evil with good.
It’s about more than pushing the trigger
or destroying a man.
