WHAT DOES GOD WANT OF MY LANGUAGE? – Sami Nasr / Translation: Alicia Minjarez Ramírez

Poem by Sami Nasr

 

WHAT DOES GOD WANT OF MY LANGUAGE?

What does God want of my language?
I, who threw suspended questions.
I, who have given my life to him.
What does God want of my language?
Although I have dedicated years of my life
to God, the unfortunately transparent hours
and to the day, the remnants engraved
on the rock.
