UNITED KURDISTAN… » Jalal Barzannji

Jalal Barzannji


By:Jalal Barzanji

Istanbul- to Edmonton is seventeen hours by air

If you go by bout  across the Adriatic Sea

The bottom of ocean- Shortens to exile of water land

Us and our home- inside the  suitcase.

From the veiled ( Sevas) city to the airport of Istanbul

Thirteen hours by bus

To fly at dawn- the refugees were to depart

Some came from very far away

Some were sleeping on the chairs

Some were preparing their hearts for the flight

Some were preparing their bodies for leaving

Some were learning second   language  using a dictionary

Some were taking their hats out of their suitcase to wear on the plane

Some were missing home and others

… Could not wait to get away from home

An evening of late fall

Us and our home in a suitcase

From( Ankara) city we went to( Sevas)

Seven hours by bus

Not too long time ago

We fled civil war

To (UN) in Ankara to claim refugee

Luckily accepted

We were immigrant

At a Canadian embassy

In Ankara six treble months

In (Oluss)

A pool of refuges and the displaced of Turkish Kurds

Every morning  Little Kurdish girl,

and I were passing 122 stone stairs to Downtown ,

She dreams of selling water to buy bread-

I.. to stroll  away my challenging fate

I am not a story teller

I speak from my heart

In the dawn we board the plane

It is the first flight

My wife and my three little children

Ever had

It is my forth flight

Once for free-

when I was child

I flew with my kite

The flight held no fear

Second after the reform in Soviet Union

I flew to Ukraine

To go  to( Sweden) to claim refugee.

In (Kiev) at the  airport control

I knew

it is a fake visa

My Third  flight

I was deported back from( Kiev) to (Istanbul)

Lonely- empty as my pocket

Our plane left the ground

Heading the sky, near freedom

The plane is a swing for my children,

No fear across their faces

The pinnacle of the sky is my wish for the plane  To reach,

Near god.

The plane is heading the sky,

Wishing for window seat,

Watching the cloud filling it .

We are above the clouds

Above the rain!

Above the snow !

Above crowd

Above the powers!

We are passing the sky ,

To feel full of blue.

The blueness of the sky,

Bringing thoughts of separation.

Six hours in ( Amsterdam) is our transit.

Looking like a broken wings of a bird ,

Caring our( I O M )bags ,

No courage to leave our gate,

Afraid of feeling further lost.

In Amsterdam we bought a phone card ,

To call home,

We have passed a quarter of the path to exile

To tell we are still alive

To tell we may not came back.

I am stray In( Amsterdam )

Difficult to memorize everything yet.

Again our plane is passing the sky ,

Leaving the( Nether lands) flowers in its beauty,

To go to the farthest west ,

Passing the Atlantic sky

Our plane smoothly  passing the sky of( Atlantic),

Faster than the wind ,

Even faster than our plane

Is our hope .

We are in the sky,

No sky left to miss.

We are following the sunset,

It is a head of us.

We are passing the space,

To reach our new home in Canada ,

The home is awake in February snow,

The home has no address in our packet yet,

The home as beautiful as our dream!

*Istanbul: the biggest city in Turkey

Saves: the city in Turkey

Ankara: the capital city of Turkey

Kiev: the capital city of Ukrainian

Oluss :the name of a downtown in Ankara

IOM: one of the (UNHCR) organizations  takes care of accepted refugees to take them to countries they were  accepted into.
