HAZELNUT FORM EYES WATCHING OVER US - By Linda Dervishi

HAZELNUT FORM EYES WATCHING OVER US

We want freedom

But watched over we are  

MANKIND IS BUT BOILING FLUIDS 

Nations carrying the name of earth

Woman, a laboratory that ‘manufactures’

Man, that come and go from darkness

With children in their arms

THEY ARE OUR HEIRS…

Hazelnut form eyes watching over us

With big, empty heads

Marvelled how their sons in this planet

DECEIVE

FIGHT

BECOME FIRE

BREATH SMOKE

BECOME ASH AND MUD

Hazelnut form eyes watching over us

As if we were screaming in a painting by Munch

Running towards the sky…

Sy ne formë lajthie që na vezhgojnë

Liri duam por te pergjuar jemi

Lëngje qe ziejnë eshtê njerëzimi

Popujt qe mbajmë emrin toke

Gruaja nje laborator ku prodhon

Burrat nga errësira vijnê e shkojnë me foshnjet ne krahe

Jane trashegimtaret thonë,..

Sy ne formë lajthie që na vezhgojnë

Me kokat e mëdha e bosh

Cuditen si bijte e tyre ne kete planet mashtrojne

Luftojne

Behen zjarr

Frymojne tym

Shuhen hi

Shkrihen ne pluhur e llum

Syte lajthi qe na vezhgojnë tek ulerasin si ne pikturen e Munch vrapojne qiejve ...
