Yassin's Poems

Surprise #2

Yesterday the science teacher
showed our class a small computer chip
He explained its enormous capacity to us
He was excited and amazed
"This is the miracle of technology!
All the tools we use in our lives
proclaim the greatness of the brain
and the power of the human being!"

the teacher really surprised me
How can he accept and believe
that the brain,
which invented the computer,
that the heavens,
which contain billions of galaxies,
that the universe,
with all of its beautiful creatures,
just appeared out of nowhere,
or came into existence by chance,
or was created
by nature,
which itself is deaf and dumb?
