Don’t you wish, sometimes, to be a Palestinian!

As curious lenses compete to capture our tears

Our pain-filled smiles radiate, redefining the meaning of beauty

Shackled with chains of occupation and oppression

Our awe inspiring dignity leaves you astounded

Tear-gassed with poison, sprayed with skunk, tasered with hatred

Our mothers  plant hearts, sprout love, flower compassion

Besieged in concentration camps in Gaza, Beit Iksa, Beit Hanina and Silwan

Our children laugh at your shortsightedness as they continue to play

Denied Identity, Return, and simply the right to BE

Palestine became a symbol, Palestinians an inspiration for freedom-lovers worldwide

They wanted us “guinea pigs” to test their weapons and practice their supremacy

We became the spearhead of global resistance

“The old will die, the young will forget” they fantasised

We embraced life with passion unmatched

Humanity, come and learn

Stand up, look up, to tyrants don’t ever kneel down

Rafeef is right, slamming her mighty words

In all shades of righteous anger

“we teach life, sir”

  1. Decadent and degenerate Muslims, Arabs and Christians are responsible for the long suffering of the Palestinian people. The miracle is their survival despite all the efforts of the Satanic imperialist and colonialist forces.
    This always happen when leaders are misleaders and when they do not govern for the common good and according to God’s Law and Guidance.

  2. […] Don’t you wish, sometimes, to be a Palestinian! […]

  3. Amazing pictures capturing the resisliance and defiance of a people who are being murdered, jailed and mistreated everyday. They are losing their homes, losing their lives, losiing their loved one’s and hope is so hard to maintain, but these amazing beautiful Palestinians inspire me.

  4. Brilliant, Nahida. Absolutely brilliant. All we do is not enough. Yet.
