Think of Others

Mahmoud Darwish


While making breakfast, think of others

[don't forget the pigeons' feed]

While fighting your wars, think of others

[don't forget those who want peace]

While paying your water bill, think of others

[those who are drinking the clouds]

While walking home, think of others

[don't forget the people of the tents]

While sleeping and counting planets, think of others

[there are those who don't have a place to sleep]

While liberating yourself with metaphors, think of others

[those who lost the right to speak]

While thinking of the distant others, think of yourself

[say: I wish I were a candle in the dark]
