Surrender

I want to surrender myself,
to the distant horizon,
where the ocean ends,
and the sky begins.

I want to merge with all that surrounds me.

I feel and I know,
I reach out and am scared,
but I believe and have faith,
that nothing will stand in my way.

Poem by Margot Bickel, translated from German to Farsi by Ahmad Shamlou. English translation by NikNaz Kahnamoui
