Plastic Days

 Plastic Days
 Arabic Poem by: Muhannad Al-Khikani*
 Translated into English by:
 Inaam Al-Hashimi (Gold_N_Silk)
 Never mind
 Days will fold our faces 
And go on, 
Just as suitcases would fold 
A handful of hearts
Sealed with hope. 

Never mind
A lot of rain will sink in this mud
And the fate of the despondent
Will be suspended in the question
The day whereon
The mud and this wetness will not be availed
By chests unveiling prayers 
Nor by fingers that drop in the lap of the heavens
Declaring the way back 
And burdened with life...
Never mind my friend...
We all know what we don’t know
And we all wait...
For that
Who doesn’t know
That it’s him
Who we are waiting for.

Translated by: Em. Prof. Inaam Al-Hashimi
