From the Book
"God, I Am Here" by Vagif Samadoghlu
I was born in 1939,
In 1937 I got arrested.*
My granny died in '48,
I cried for someone who died
For the first time in my life.
I had some fish in an aquarium.
My window was left open
One winter night
And the fish froze.
Now it is a January night in 1965
And it seems I want to live.
*1937 refers to the terrible year of Repression by Stalin against the intellectuals in Azerbaijan and throughout the Soviet Union in that year.
