Poetry in Arabic and Translation 

رعد في الخريف الأحمر

صراصير الليل يغنون

الهدوء الذي يسبق العاصفة النيلية

tonnerre d'automne rouge

grillons chantent

le calme

avant un orage indigo

thunder of red autumn

crickets sing

the calm

before an indigo storm

الأيام الصيفية المعتدلة انتهت

العواصف الرعدية تقترب

أنا وعباد الشمس ننتظر مصيرن

doux jours d'été disparus

orages se rassemblent

les tournesols et moi

     on attend notre destin

sweet summer days lost

thunderstorms gather

sunflowers and I

     await our fate

لقد رأيت الحرب 

I've seen war

لقد رأيت الحرب


انه كان سيف الضغينة

في الريح

رأيت الدم على يديك

الأمور ليست كما كانت

كنت تعتقد أنني كنت بحزن بالغ عندما غادرت؟

واود ان ابكى فرحا

عالمي أصبح أكثر غنى من أي وقت مضى

لدي الحرية. لي إسمي الخاص

سيصبح العالم اكثر اشراقا فى غيابك


I've seen war.

Your malice

was a sword of spite

in the wind.

I have seen the blood in your hands.

Things aren't what they were.

You think I grieved when you left?

I want to weep with joy.

My world is richer than ever;

I have freedom, I have my own name.

The world will be brighter in your absence
