That building!

Is what i was telling you about
Almost standing but not quite
With half a face, half identity
And sometimes half dignity
Perforated to the heart
But open to all
Had seen it all
In the middle of Beirut...

Great pic mir:)
That building is like us...
Still standing.
Sometimes I wonder how many syndromes a psychiatrist would find in us, the lebanese war generations. Stuff that we think is perfectly normal...

once I was there, I shot there actally
I felt there with Spirits of people who lived and die there
I hope they keep it as a witness from war period
