Soad Al Sabah
Translated by Mohammad Abdul Karem Yousef (2021)
I prefer to say to each other-;-
How narrow are the words when we say them like others.
I don t want my emotions to be
A copy of the wishes of others.
I reject the love that is packaged in postcards.
I love you at the beginning of the year.
I love you at the end of the year.
Love is greater than all times.
And love is wider than all places.
So I prefer to tell each other:
Love thar revolts against theatrical rituals in speech.
Love that revolts against norms.
against the roots.
against the system .
Love that tries to change everything
In the dictionaries of love.
