  • And we listen
    To what is in us of hidden longing
    For an ambiguous street: I have my life over there
    My life that caravans made then went on their way
    And here I have my life as my bread's worth
    And I have my questions about a fate a passing
    Present tortures, and I have
    A beautiful chaotic tomorrow.

    - Mahmoud Darwish, 'We Walk On The Bridge'.
