Where shall I go? I’m weary of the ways. I’m bored with the meadows and with the persistent, hidden enemy following my footsteps. Where can I escape? The trails and roads that carry songs to every strange horizon. The paths of life; the corridors in night’s total darkness; the corners of the bare days… I’ve wandered along them all, with my relentless enemy behind me. Keeping a steady pace, or sitting firmly. Like the mountains of snow in the far north. - Nazik Al-Malaika 
*Portrait of a Kurdish woman, Al-Anfal Campaign,1981 
Sorrow fills my heart. Today is [another] tragic day for Iraq.
