Atlı explained the process of getting to know the poem to the Mesopotamia Agency as follows:

During the coronavirus epidemic, I got to know the poem through a video that circulated on social media and was read by the poet in his own voice. The poem touched me with its content such as leaving a place or someone, a contradiction such as ‘missing’ or ‘a reproachful, unwanted departure’. With its clear and beautiful Kurdish it sounded like a poem well suited to be a fluent song. I asked Bereh for permission and picked up my guitar and tried to develop a song as if I were reciting a poem; musical reading. Over time, I shared it with my musician friends and an arrangement came out. We released a single that is the product of common solidarity with images, drawings and the clip, poem, song and arrangements composed of the letters of the poem, typography and images from the Mardin environment.
