মায়া অ্যাঞ্জেলো

জন্ম ১৯২৮

মায়া অ্যাঞ্জেলো (১৯২৮-২০১৪), বিংশশতাব্দীর অন্যতম উল্লেখযোগ্য কবি, গায়িকা এবং সিভিল রাইটস অ্যাক্টিভিস্ট। প্রথম যৌবনের চড়াইউৎরাই কেটেছে রান্নার কাজ করে, যৌনকর্মী, নাইটক্লাবে নর্তকী হিসেবে। উপদ্রুত শৈশবে ধর্ষণের শিকার বালিকাটি ক্লিনিক্যালি মূক ছিলেন দীর্ঘ পাঁচবছর। অনেক এবড়োখেবড়ো এবং অন্ধকার অতিক্রম করে, মধ্যতিরিশে উপশম খুঁজে পেয়েছিলেন কবিতার কাছে। ১৯৬৯ সালে প্রকাশিত প্রথম আত্মজীবনী ‘I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” তাঁর লেখাকে আন্তর্জাতিক পরিচিতি দেয়।

কবিতার কালো পাখিটি, সারাজীবন বলে গেছেন মেয়েদের, মানুষের সমানাধিকারের কথা।

ভাষান্তর ।  প্রগতি বৈরাগী

বয়সের দিন

তোমার সঙ্গে দেখা হলো শান্ত বসে থাকায়

তাকের কোণে ফেলে রাখা ঠোঙার মতো আমি

ভেবো না আজ তোমার সাথে গল্পে মাততে চাইছি

আমি শুধু আমায়, শুধু আমায় এখন শুনছি

উঁহু, থামাও এক্ষুনি এই দয়ার কাব‍্যখানি

থামাও তোমার দাক্ষিণ‍্যের সবটুকু বাখানি

বুঝতে পারলে ভালোই

নইলে, ছাড়তে আমি জানি

যখন আমার সমস্ত হাড় বিকল এবং ব‍্যথায়

সিঁড়ির ধাপে চড়তে গেলে পায়ের পাতা টাঁটায়

একটি সুযোগ দিও আমায়, একটিই সাড়া

জোগাড় করে উঠোনা কোন আরাম কেদারা

যখন তুমি দেখবে আমায় হোঁচট খেতে, হাঁটতে

বেঠিক বুঝে রেখোনা আর ভুলের কোন রেশ

ক্লান্ত আমি, আলস‍্যে নই

যেমন অনেক বিদায়ক্ষণই

ফিরে যাওয়ায় ফুরোয় না ঠিক, থাকে অনিঃশেষ

আমি আজো তেমন মানুষ, যেজন আগের মতো

চুলের গোছা পাতলা হলেও, ব্রীড়ার পালিশ নম্র হলেও

কলজে ভেঙে আঁধার এলেও, দমের ভীষণ ঘাটতি হলেও

কী বিস্ময়ে বেঁচে আছি,

বরাতজোড়ে শ্বাসের চলন আজো অনাহত
