AnnaLynne McCord’s Viral Poem About Vladimir Putin

The 34-year-old 90210 actress and human rights activist shared a powerful video message on Twitter to Vladimir Putin.

AnnaLynne McCord tells him:

Dear President Vladimir Putin, I’m so sorry that I was not your mother,’ she began. ‘If I was your mother you would have been so loved, held in the arms of joyous light, never would the story’s plight the world unfurled before our eyes, a pure demise of nations sitting peacefully under a night sky.

If I was your mother, the world would have been warm. So much laughter and joy and nothing would harm. I can’t imagine the stain, the soul-stealing pain, that the little boy you have seen and believed, and the formulation of thought quickly taught that you lived in a cruel unjust world. 

Is this why you now decide no one will get the best of you? Is this why you do not hide nor away shy from taking back the world. Was it because so early in life, all that strife wrapped your little body with fear. 

If I was your mother, if the world was cold I’d have died to make you warm. I’d have died to protect you from the unjust, the violence, the terror, the uncertainty, I would have died to give you life. Oh Dear Mr. President Putin, if only I’d been your mother. 

Perhaps you would hold dear human life and on this night instead of Mother Russia, you would call me and I would set your mind quite free with the love that only a mother can give. 

And only a mother to take away, when holds she doesn’t harm at bay and leaves her boy for the promise of a man. Whatever your story, Mr President Putin, I can’t imagine how it feels in your heart but I know if I was your mother, I would be a start. 

Towards the awareness of what a powerful being of light you could be if your mind was only free from the violence, you’ve seen when you were just two or three. I cannot believe I was born too late. In a different place when I would have loved you so, watched you play wherever you go.
