Ramallah

I raise my cup to those who drink with me

to an awakening to the beauty of the butterfly

in the long tunnel of this dark night.

 

I raise my cup to those who drink with me

in the thick darkness of a night overflowing with crippled souls

I raise my cup to the apparition in my being.

-Mahmoud Darwish, ‘Ramallah’.
