Yes I am


Yes, I am a Palestinian

Yes, I am a Muslim

Yes, I am a humanist

Yes, I am a woman

Yes, I am a mother

Yes, I am a grandmother

And

YES

I am a freedom fighter

***

I fight for my right to think freely

I fight for my right to speak my mind

I fight for my right to live in dignity

I fight for my right to cherish all life

I fight for my right to choose my faith

I fight for my right to live my values

I fight for my right to realize my dreams

I fight for my right to go back home

***

I fight against “fitna” which is oppression

I fight against “Udwan” which is aggression

Wholly inhumane

***

I fight with my verses to make headways

My pen is my weapon

My words are my “Jihad”

I fight against greed, vice and supremacy

Either I help bring it down

Or I die doing so

***

And

YES

I am a freedom fighter

Have you any problem with that?
