I grew up – Poem by Tarana Turan Rahimli / Translated by Sevil Gulten

Poem by Tarana Turan Rahimli

 

I grew up

I was left on the crossroads,
I grow up choosing my own way.
I passed through the aches
That filled into my inside.

I was interested with a strange wish,
I directed towards light and sound.
I drunk off the love
I grew up drinking such loves.

I took hands of the expectation,
I was lost in the corners of life.
I cut the grief to my height
I grew up in this way.

My spirit was invaded thousand times,
I took shelter only in the hemistiches.
A fire was made inside of my heart
But I didn’t burn, I grew up being experienced.
