A conversation between two hearts


 

A conversation between two hearts


Joy?! What is joy?

 

It is that feeling

When you start jumping

Up and down?

It is that feeling

When you are beating

As fast as you can!

 

Aha… I know,

But, that to me

Is fear and terror

When f16’s are shelling

Every house in town

I start jumping

Like a mad clown!

Is this really joy?

 

No… No

Joy is that feeling

When you are going

To meet some dear one you love

As if you’re flying in the clouds

Up above

 

Aha… I know

But this is to me

So sad and painful

For I can’t stop the tears flooding down

Looking at my father

Behind the prison bars!

Unable to touch him

Or even kiss him goodbye!

Is this really joy?

 

No… No

Joy is what you get

When you really want

Just to stop all time

Wishing that

The hand of the clock

Never ticks, nor tocks

Freezing that moment

Forever and ever!

 

Aha… I know

But, this is to me

Horror and beyond

When soldiers come dashing

Knocking at the door

Crashing and smashing

Mixing rice flour and oil

Looking for my brother

Who just turned thirteen

Is this really joy?

 

No… No

Joy is so warm

Like,

When you’re wrapped up

In your cozy bed

In a soft blanket

With your cuddly toy!

 

Aha… I know

But, this is what I get

When they start bombing

The late night shelling

I feel hot and sweaty

Hiding under my bed

Scared and terrified

Is that really joy?

 

No… No

Joy is so sweet

Like chocolate and candy-bars

When you start eating

You can never stop

 

Aha… but I don’t know

What is chocolate?

And what is candy-bars?

I guess I’ll never know

What is joy

For I am only

The heart

Of a Palestinian boy
