I left the motherland

because home made me feel prisoned.

I needed freedom

but above and beyond that

I left because I wanted to expand

I wanted my eyes to see wider than a little spot

I wanted to see if I can still feel words, if I speak another language

I did not come all this way to be a representative,

neither I aspire to make people have a beautiful image of Iran.

I am here because I want to be much bigger than that.

to be over that.
