What will remain 

Translated into English

ماذا من الانسانِ يبقى 

انْ جردوهُ من ارضِه واهلهِ 

ان صادروا جميعَ ذكرياتِه , واحرقوا دفتَرَهُ الصغيرْ 

ماذا من الانسانِ يبقى 

ان ضاقتْ به البلادُ والعبادْ , والوطن الكبيرْ 

ماذا من الانسان يبقى 

ان كان له من حرية الخيارْ 

بين النار … وبين زمهرير 

هل هذا هو بربكم حق تقرير المصير !

what in human remains

if they stripped him from his home and his family

if they confiscated all his memories and his that small notes book

of his big country with people have narrowed on him

what in human remains

if all what is available choice 

is to chose between hell and bitter cold

is that the right of self-determination
