Mahmoud Darwish on poetry and identity

Mahmoud Darwish on poetry and identity ⁣

« I have learned and dismantled all the words in order to draw from them a single word: Home. »⁣

« I am from there. I am from here. I am not there and I am not here. I have two names, which meet and part, and I have two languages. I forget which of them I dream in ».⁣

He’s one of my favorite poets ever since I discovered the powerful and beautiful metaphors he always came up with in his timeless poems. ⁣

Mahmoud Darwish used words as a form of political resistance and united so many people who found an echo to their quiet voices within his ability to put the most complicated feelings into simple, yet beautiful words. ⁣
