Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

Nazik al-Mala’ika, from ‘I am’, Women of the Fertile Crescent: An Anthology of Modern Poetry by Arab Women (ed. & trans. Kamal Boullata)

Baffled, I stare into the dark
Nothing brings me peace
I ask, but the answer
Remains hooded in mirage
I keep thinking it is near
Upon reaching it, it dissolves”]
