"My address" - Amrita Pritam

tr. from Amrita Pritam's 'Mera Pata'

Today, I wiped off the house-number
on my door,

erased the name of my street, and more,
wherever I found signs giving people directions,
I rubbed them clean,

but if you still somehow mean
to find me,

knock on every door, in every street,
of every city and country - keep guessing,

this is a curse, this is a blessing - roam,
and wherever you'll find a free spirit,

know, that is my home.



Amrita Pritam

I have not read the original...
but the translation reads very very nice...
