Fatima Zahra Bennis

FROM A PAPER BALCONY

From a paper balcony
I view my whirlwinds
I look but understand nothing
A life is over
A life begins
And I in between
Delighting in my journey
With no destiny
Holding me back

شرفة ورقية

شرفة ورقية

من شرفة ورقية
أطل على زوابعي
أرى ولا أفهم
حياة تروح
وأخرى تجيء
وأنا بينهما أستعذب سفري
ولا يشدني أيما مقام..

A life begins
And I in between
Delighting in my journey
With no destiny

FROM A PAPER BALCONY

From a paper balcony
I view my whirlwinds
I look but understand nothing
A life is over
A life begins
And I in between
Delighting in my journey
With no destiny
Holding me back
