From the Book
"God, I Am Here" by Vagif Samadoghlu


In what language shall I appeal to You?
Is one prayer enough for You?
Or shall I beg Your favor over and over?
I am laughing neither at You, nor at the world.
I am laughing at myself.
Because I know only two
of the thousands of languages that You have created.
And one of those two languages that I know
is known neither in heaven nor on earth.
That's why I am praying to You in the only other language that I know:
Goodness, help me, Goodness.


The author refers to the Azeri language first. The final line of the poem is written in Russian.
