8 Jaryna Bakalück 11 years sings:

May I cry a little.

Somewhere in the corner of the room?

There are tears deep within me.

To the mother who is tired of grief.


May I cry a little.

You do not have to be sorry.

These are the tears deep within me.

Who raped all the children.


May I cry a little.

Grandma wanders around the burning building.

The enemy burned their house.

I will stay with her today.


May I cry a little and scream like a wild animal.

These are the tears in me.

The soldier who lost a brother in arms.


May I cry a little.

Wheat fields are burning.

The enemy is destroying our crops.

Mean, with rockets from the sky.


May I cry a little.

I have no power anymore.

They take away ground from under your feet.

And say: we are not worthy of life.


May I cry a little.

And pray in the emptiness.

I know: it is God who is crying within me.

And hugs my shoulders

(Ira Danilko)
