Help for People of Chechnya

We present you a poem of Estonian artist Marko Maetamm on Chechnya with his deep feelings.

.

.

I am an artist
And very sensitive
Therefore
I would so much like to help suffering people in Chechnya
This is of course
Very formal way of thinking
But I am thousands of kilometres far
From were they are
And to be honest I would never go there
Because I don’t want complications
To myself
And also to my family
And
I am
Afraid
To get killed too
So actually I don’t see any other possibilites
But writing this text
And pretending
That I have done something very important
But deep inside myself I think
That this is absolutely worthless
And
That I am
Completely
A fucking
Real
Failure

Estonia – 2006
Marko Maetamm
