Where are you my brothers!?
I might be Kurd, but how come I am not represented in your history?
I might be Kurd, but how come I have no part in your victory?
How come your geography ends with the beginning of my territory?
I might be Kurd, but how come I am treated as a minority?
I might be Kurd, but where were you when I needed thee?
How come when you need me I am called your brother?
How come when you attain high station I am called your neighbour?
We rose up in the midst of our enemy; we gave up our lives for the sake of YOUR victory!
For YOUR sake I was cast out by our common foe, because I was “Ajami”!
Where is my brother who fought for YOUR sake, where is his grave the one that by YOU was forsaken?
Why do you treat my plight with such coldness, As if I was the bastard son of your father?
Is it because of my love and allegiance toward the progeny?
Where are you my brother, where were you when I needed YOU?
I am Feyli, those who rose up when you needed me!
I am Feyli, those who never sold their brothers for a penny!
I am Feyli, those who screams out their kurdishness the loudest!
I am Feyli, I am the one who was abandoned by his brothers!
I am screaming out my pain in agony, I am alone in my state of misery!
