Oh my wings

Poem by Amal Kloosh, 13 (English below)

وصلي يا جناحي على أخر هالكون

مهمومة ومكسورة ومالي طعم ولون

وصلني يا جناحي على الدنيا الفسيحة

لا تتركني طيرة مهمومةوجريحة

أنا زهرة بين الشوك وأحلامي هدية

عندي قلب وبدي حب وعشقانة الحرية

وصلني يا جناحي على بر الأمان

ورجيني الحقيقة ورجيني الإنسان

Oh my wings, take me to the end of this world;

I am burdened and broken with no color or taste.

Oh my wings, take me to the vast world;

Don’t leave me as a bird, hurt with broken wings.

A flower between thrones and hopeless dreams,

I have a heart and I want love and freedom.

Oh my wings, take me to safety,

Return me to truth, to humanity.

Amal Kloosh (13 years old)
