We are here

In this hot sea together

Why should one cry the loudest?

Water, please stop screaming

Pepper, garden eggs, onions

Tomatoes, are lost in your world

Only their colour seves a reminder through you

So why must you make the loudest noise?

We are all unfortunate beings

Who among us was able to say goodbye

To his or her beloveds?

Who among us was buried as is duly expected?

Who among us loves to be hot in a sea on fire?

I love the sea, but not when it is boiling

From the coolest sea, I was brought here and made a carcass

So why can’t you let my soul rest in peace?

Whether we cry, shout or fight

We’ll end up in the human mill

On a second thought, please continue

It is your nature to weep,

To draw the attention of our maker

That we are ready to be milled

Sad, these no farewell trips!
