My Voice

Partaw Naderi

I come from a distant land

with a foreign knapsack on my back

with a silenced song on my lips

As I travelled down the river of my life

I saw my voice

(like Jonah)

swallowed by a whale

And my very life lived in my voice

Kabul

December, 1989

Translated from the Dari by Yama Yari and Sarah Maguire for The Poetry Translation Centre.
