With My Teeth - Poem by Tawfiq Zayyad

with my teeth I'll protect
every inch of my homeland
With my teeth.
Nothing can replace the homeland for me
even if they would hang me
with my own veins.
I stay
a prisoner of my love
for the fence that surrounds my house
for the dew on the bowing lily.
I stay
unvanquished by every hardness.
I stay
I'll protect every inch of my homeland
With my teeth
