They Spoke in Ignorance

They Spoke in Ignorance

Poetry and translation by Fahed



They said: “Your life of honey, roses and paradise is thriving.” They do not know that there is oppression and torment in all colours.

…………………………………..

They said: “If the choice was in our hands, your life would be chosen.” They do not know that there is sadness, anxiety and pain burning in them.

…………………………………..

They said: “Your life is a fragrance and laughter flows like rivers.” They do not know that the spring of the smile and the hope thereof are thirsty.

…………………………………..

They said: “Love and love and lovers like the sea.” They do not know this one bastard Ghaddar and this traitor.

…………………………………..

They said: “If you have a sad day, forget the sadness and do not care for the pain.” They do not know that grief and oppression at night, the angels hear my cry of pain.

…………………………………..

They said: “Long night-time parties and play with your lover and your neighbour.” They do not know that I do not know the taste of sleep from the intensity of sorrows and oppression.

…………………………………..

They said: “You are confident and ambitious and you can find the solution to your problems. Do not hesitate.” They do not know that I am destroyed and broken, and from pains I have suffered.

…………………………………..

They said and whatever they said in my life, this is the fate. They do not know anything Hahaha if they knew something they left me alone and no one accompanied me on my way.

…………………………………..

I give your decision in my life when you live with me … Do not give your decision of what you see about my life from afar….




قالوا حياتك عسل وفل وجنة وازهار

مادروا فيها من القهر والعذاب الوااان

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا لو الخيار بيدنا حياتك بنختااار

مادروا فيها حزن وغم والالم شعلاان

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا حياتك عطر وضحكه تسيل انهار

مادروا نبع البسمة والامل فيها ظماآن

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا فيها حب وهيااام وعشق بحاار

مادروا هذا نذل غدر وهذا واحد خان

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا من يمسك حزن تنسا وتحرقه بنار

مادروا الحزن والقهر بالليل أواااانه آآآن

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا سهر طويل ولعب مع حبيب وجار

مادروا ما اعرف طعم النوم من الآحزان

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا واثق طامح وبمشاكلك وما تحتار

مادروا مدمر مكسور ومن الأوجاع آعان

…………………………………. ‘’

قالوا وشو ماقالوا فيا بتضل هاي الاقدار

مادروا ههه ولو دروا كانوا تركوني زمان
