Ahmad Shamlu : Dearth

I am tired of sorrow
that is not mine,
Standing on soil
that is not mine,
Being known by a name
that is not mine,
Screaming of pain
that is not mine,
Being born of pleasure
that is not mine,
And dying a death
that is not mine.

Poem by AHMAD SHAMLU
translated by Tatul Sonentz Papazian
