رائحة الوطن

جليد الروح  من يصهره إلا شمس الوطن وصقيع القلب من يدفئه إلا رائحة الوطن…. سأدفن الجراح وألام الغربة والمعاناة بين الأردن الحبيبة وبين الوطن وسأفتح عينيّ المغمضتين حال دوس ترابك حيث لا رصاص ولا سلاح ولا رائحة بارود إلا رائحة الحبق والزنبق والزيزفون وأصير ألف امرأة وامرأة كي أبني الوطن وأزرع أرضه لتكون كل الفصول ربيعاً وأصيغ بنوداً في الدستور كي احفظ للنساء  حقوقهن…. سأعمل وأعمل وأعمل، ليكتب التاريخ وراء كل وطنٍ عظيمٍ نساءً عظيماتٍ كنساء سوريا…….

-حميدة

The ice surrounding a person’s heart is only melted by the warmth of the sun shining in his/her country, and the coldness is only warmed by the smell of the country’s soil…I will bury the pain of being away from my country between beloved Jordan and my home country, and I will open my closed eyes as soon as I set foot in it. There will be no guns, no shooting, no weapons, no smell of gun powder, but only the smell of basil, lilies, and linden. And I will become a strong woman to build my country and plant in its soil so all our seasons will be like spring. I want to write laws in our constitution to defend the rights of women…I will work and work and work. May history document that behind every great country are great women like the women of Syria…

– Hamida
