I Feel Words
by Saleh Ben Saleh

I praise the wise and respect the wisdom of every old and young, for when they speak they pave the way to every poem or song.

There is a charm in all their words and phrases short or long. In what they say you should believe until you prove them wrong.

or feel the fire of deep desire,
