“The Stranger”. Poem by late Palestinian Mahmoud DarwishThis person was a stranger to me

I had no idea what she could have done before
I saw a coffin, people in mourning
I walked with her, her head low, in an important respect attitude
She was walking ahead of me.
I found no opportunity to ask her my well-composed questions
“Who is in the coffin? How this late person died? How it lived?”
Of the many ways people dies from,
I can vouch for one that I experienced
“Living badly”
