Beloved people of Gaza



 

 

 

Beloved people of Gaza

Beloved people of Gaza

Treasured people of Palestine

Teachers of courage and dignity

Archetype of humanity

 

Allow me to kneel down

And wash your feet with my tears

Kiss your blessed hands

And sprinkle your beautiful faces with musk and roses

 

While we sat pondering like fools

Utterly helpless

Talking much and doing less

Going round and round in circles

Thinking how to help

What to offer you to relief some of your pain

 

As usual

Full of surprises, you come out to our rescue, to soothe our agony

You present us with the most precious gifts

Lessons in bravery

Steadfastness, patience, perseverance, defiance, resilience

Optimism against all odds

Creativity in the face of utter oblivion

 

You’ve demonstrated that you are the free ones … we are the captives

You chose resistance over subjugation

You decided not to be enslaved

Not even to superpowers

 

Would we ever learn from you?
