Adeeb Kamal Ad-Deen
Your name has the light of sun when rising
At dawn through the universes of darkness
Or the coast' brightness
It dawns through the sailors' screams
In the middle of the seas of darkness.
I groped torn off limbs
Searching for torn off limbs
Calling your name.
The darkness absorbed me
And the sea inside my chest flooded.
I have not yet beaten the sea with my stick
Nor have I drunk from the spring of wisdom.
The sailors inside me screamed: where is the captain?
I wept when I saw the people naked smiling around me.
Your wall around me .
You, by your name,
The sea bottom shakes,
The stab deeply sinks,
The curse with two canines averts.
Grant me unsuspicious head
Not complaining of the horror of the wild waves.
Grant me two eyes,
A lip and two hands.
Tear out whatever hate or torture I have.
Your wall around me.
You, who leaves me in suspect
To live, to die, and to be resurrected
So that to be buried
In the middle of the barking dead.
