Uma História Feminina

Um poema de Nasim Basiri

A Feminine History

 

We’ve got an eminent story

To be told

A prominent history

To be portrayed

We resisted using arts and literature

As weapons

In the silent days

The soothed years

When all windows were closed

While all gates were locked

And yet we rise

To create a feminine history

To be remembered

And a story

To be told

Uma História Feminina

Tradução: Lucas van Hombeeck

Temos uma história eminente

A contar

Uma história proeminente

A lembrar

Resistimos usando arte e literatura

Como armas

Nos dias de silêncio

Anos de sossego

Quando as janelas estavam fechadas

Enquanto os portões eram trancados

E ainda assim

Nos erguemos

Para criar uma história feminina

A ser lembrada

E uma história

A ser contada
