Oh, my God, there are a lot of poets – Tarana Turan Rahimli / Translated from Azerbaijani into English by Sevil Gulten

Poems by Tarana Turan Rahimli

 

Oh, my God, there are a lot of poets

Oh, my God, there are a lot of poets
See, how many poems come to life.
See, how many poems are suffocated
The rope of a word around its neck.

When the price of the words are so cheap,
All are like the shah on the throne of word.
Some fall from their destiny.
Some fall from their words.

We turned to a slave in a slave world,
There is no way to be escaped from here.
Oh, my God, in the world, full of poets,
I don’t feel myself well.
