RECALCITRANCE
(جموح)
A Poem by Eiman Adam Translated by Asha Musa

A Land so vast...
As big as feminine woe
At a time so mean
Fate an inferno
Hell...aglow
God-sent misery!

I was born a woman…
Created as one of a sex deemed low
Extracted from a tanned skin
A rib crooked as a bow...
This is how they made me
Can I ever straighten the statue؟

Need I carry this dump mountain
All the way through؟
Like I am uprooting a forest
Engulfed in eternal sorrow
Haunted by phantoms of the night

Servitude is to God
Servility cloned for women
I am just water semen
Dough for misery
Unseen by lovers
Yet, proud I shall stay
Servitude is to God
To me, you be what you may.
