Mahmoud Darwish

I have no words.
There is only an emptiness
which his own words will fill.

"On the verge of death, he says:
I have no trace left to lose:
Free I am so close to my liberty. My future lies in my own hand.
Soon I shall penetrate my life,
I shall be born free and parentless,
And as my name I shall choose azure letters... "

From 'Under Siege'
