My Dignity - Poem by Mohammad Radoan
Lonely street, they stay calm
Lonely me, my soul's gone.
Where I am?
Who I am?
My identity gone.
My hunger drives me crazy
The cold gets me lazy.
The night's cold and dark
The street lamps are-
my only light, my only heat spark.
The night is so silent,
Only the nocturnal dog calls my name
Knows my in-fame.
I am one of a many
My friend dies of cold at night.
They beg at day
in the warm sun's ray.
We are the only witness of every crime
Only Allah knows my tale, my rhyme.
Fear of death we have never
Hunger has killed us over and over.
One thing I miss
The warmth, the love.
No one to support us in this abyss.
She comes only in my dreams
That's only where I find peace.
