write down, I am Arab

As a part of Art Week Amman, this collection attempts to unfold feelings and translate them into an emotional, political and cultural space.

 

سجل 
أنا عربي 
جذوري

قبلَ ميلادِ الزمانِ رستْ 
وقبلَ تفتّحِ الحقبِ 
وقبلَ السّروِ والزيتونِ 

وقبلَ ترعرعِ العشبِ 

 

- محمود درويش -

Write down!
I am an Arab
My roots
Were entrenched before the birth of time
And before the opening of the eras
Before the pines, and the olive trees
And before the grass grew

 

- Mahmoud Darwish -
