Little "Ashraf" of Palestine
Wanted to go out to town
He gets ready as fast as he can
Sparkly eyes and a gorgeous smile
Down in town he wonders around
This is so wonderful… how peaceful
So safe and secure
It is "Aman"
He whispers with a smile
These are big words, I said
For a five year old!
What do you mean by safe and secure?
There is nothing to frighten you
Nothing to make you scared
There is no fear in your heart
Now, do you understand?
He simply replied
