The Earth is closing on us

By Mahmoud Darwish

(A famous Palestinian poet)



The earth is closing on us, pushing us through the last passage, and we tear off our limbs to pass through.

The earth is squeezing us. I wish we were its wheat so we could die and live again. I wish the earth was our mother

So she'd be kind to us. I wish we were pictures on the rocks for our dreams to carry

As mirrors. We saw the faces of those to be killed by the last of us in the last defense of the soul.

We cried over their children's feast. We saw the faces of those who'll throw our children

Out of the windows of this last space. Our star will hang up mirrors.

Where should we go after the last frontiers? Where should the birds fly after the last sky?

Where should the plants sleep after the last breath of air? We will write our names with scarlet steam.

We will cut off the hand of the song to be finished by our flesh.

We will die here, here in the last passage. Here and here our blood will plant its

Olive tree.
