New Year, don’t come to our homes, for we are wanderers from a ghost-world, denied by man. Night flees from us. Fate has deserted us. We live as wandering spirits with no memory, no dreams, no longings, no hopes. We wish to be dead, and refused by the graves. We wish to write history by the years. If only we knew what it is to be bound to a place… If only memory, or hope, or regret could one day block our country from its path. If only we feared madness. If only our lives could be disturbed by traveller shock, or the sadness of an impossible love. If only we could die like other people. - Nazik Al Malaika
