  • 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'.
