Let us have a conversation today.
Let us talk.
Let us exchange the feelings our hearts have carried within them
For generations
Let us talk about them
Share, experience
And then,
Let us learn from each other.

Let us have a conversation today,
Let me tell you, 
Of stories my mother told me,
These stories came to her from hers,
And to her, from hers.
Let me hear the ones that you found
In that ancient diary, 
Hidden in that corner of your house
That you hadn’t yet visited.

Let us have a conversation today,
Because maybe then,
And only then, 
Would we be able to see,
How similar, and yet how different,
You and I are.

Let us have a conversation today,
You and me,
Us and them,
We.

Let us pour our pains, and our joys,
Out to each other,
And let us embrace them all.
Let us have a conversation today. 

For these conversations may not take us far, 
But they will bring us closer,
And these conversations,
May begin,
What nothing else has.
