Plea - Nazim Hikmet

This country shaped like the head of a mare
Coming full gallop from far off Asia
To stretch into the Mediterranean
THIS COUNTRY IS OURS.

Bloody wrists, clenched teeth
bare feet,
Land like a precious silk carpet
THIS HELL, THIS PARADISE IS OURS.

Let the doors be shut that belong to others
Let them never open again
Do away with the enslaving of man by man
THIS PLEA IS OURS.

To live! Like a tree alone and free
Like a forest in brotherhood
THIS YEARNING IS OURS.

Nazim Hikmet (1902-1963

Turkish one:
Bu Memleket Bizim

Dört nala gelip uzak Asya'dan
Akdeniz'e bir kısrak başı gibi uzanan
Bu memleket bizim

Bilekler kan içinde
Dişler kenetli
Ayaklar çıplak
Ve ipek bir halıya benzeyen toprak
Bu cehennem, bu cennet bizim

Kapansın el kapıları
Bir daha açılmasın
Yok edin insanın insana kulluğunu
Bu davet bizim

Yaşamak bir ağaç gibi tek ve hür
Ve bir orman gibi kardeşÃ§esine
Bu hasret bizim

and the poem from ruhi su
