May I Go Back, a Child


65786_3549450974391_47570650_n

I want to go back, a child,
A child who does not read newspapers, nor listen to news
Does not know wars, ignorant in the art of worrying,
Does not master politics nor does she write poetry
I want to go back, a child again,
Playing in the folds of history,
Hiding beneath a bird’s wings
I want to go back, a child forgotten by time,

Left her behind and never looked back

246547_10151532850247184_104920450_n

I want to go back, a child lost her way to tomorrow,
Distracted by angels and sweet fairies
Racing with boys, throwing pebbles,

Rolling down a mountain and climbing trees
Scattering basil leaves while playing “Bride and Groom”
Having fun and allocating roles among friends

198861_487106874696099_1494324245_n

Embracing her rag-doll, so she may sleep, still and serene without fear
Whisper in her tender heart,

“Blessed the Most Sublime, how exquisite children are”
“Let her sleep, let her sleep, a couple of doves, waiting for her
“Fly away little doves, but not for long,
Come sing for the beloved so she may fall asleep”
Embroider a dress of stars, the colour of rainbow,
The enchantment of summer breeze, dew, warmth and light

522069_571476692875941_394662755_n

Of water and soil making Za’ter dough, baked with olives and olive oil,
So my beloved may eat in the morning
Gathering pomegranates, peaches, apples, pears and prickly pears
Eat sweetheart, our land is generous, its sky is wide,
Our world, an astounding journey

482488_567600603322755_1481188516_n

A child, stacking stones, building palaces out of sand
and verandas for houses with no fences or walls
At dawn, collecting figs and almonds
Filling her claypot of the well or stream down the valley
A brave knight riding her golden horse,

To rescue the princess of the castle

480848_10151779289233185_2115223480_n

Plait her wild hair, adorn with diamonds, sapphire, coral and a moon
In utter joy, wearing her mother’s bracelet
Then, hiding behind the curtain, not to be chastised
Swaying in her grandma’s rustic garb
Scented of jasmine and vine,
Embroidered with poppies, meadows and wild flowers

217656_345299815552836_1966095705_n
I want to go back, a child,
A child who does not read newspapers, nor listen to news
Does not know wars, ignorant in the art of worrying,
Does not master politics nor does she write poetry
I want to go back, a child again,
Playing in the folds of history,
Hiding beneath a bird’s wings
I want to go back, a child forgotten by time,

Left her behind and never looked back

168759_179563485407924_2660277_n

O time, hold this fragile heart in tenderness,
For it has melted of compassion, yearning for joyful past days
I want to go back, a child, sleeping like a baby,
Waking up at the singing of swallows not bombing and destruction
O Grace, take this broken heart,
Grind it down, scatter it over earth, salt and water
Our Earth is parched for justice, O Most Merciful, Most Sublime

عسى أن أعود


65786_3549450974391_47570650_n

اريد ان اعود طفلة لا تقرأ الجريدة… لا تسمع الاخبار

لا تعرف الحروب، لا تتقن الهموم، لا تفقه السياسة لا تكتب الاشعار

اريد ان اعود طفلة في ثنايا الدهر ملعبها، ومخباها بحضن الأطيار

اريد ان اعود طفلة نسيها الزمان، ودونما التفات، مضى بلا انتظار

246547_10151532850247184_104920450_n

اريد ان اعود طفلة اضاعت طريق الغد وتاهت مع الحور في عالم الابرار

تنافس الصبيان في رمي الحصى وتدحرج الجبال وتسلق الاشجار

في لعبة العريس والعروس تنثر الريحان، تلهو مع الخلان توزع الادوار

198861_487106874696099_1494324245_n

تهدهد في احضانها دمية لكي تغفو بلا خوف من الاشرار

وكي تقر عينيها، تهمس في القلب الرقيق، تبارك الرحمن، ما أجمل الصغار

“يللا تنام يللا تنام، لاهديلها طير الحمام، روح يا حمام لا تطول، غني للغالية تتنام”

تحيك لها ثوباً من النجمات، بلون الطيف، بسحر نسائم الصيف، ندىً… دفئاً… أنوار

522069_571476692875941_394662755_n

تعجن من التراب فطائر الزعتر بالزيت والزيتون كي تشبع العروسة في ساعة الافطار

تقطف لها الرمان والبرقوق والتفاح والاجاص والخروب والصبار

كلي يا حبيبة فأرضنا سخية والسما رحيبة … دنيانا أحلى مشوار

482488_567600603322755_1481188516_n

طفلة تصفف الاحجار، تبني من الرمل قصورا، وعلالي لبيوت ما لها اسوار

تقطف ثمار التين واللوز مع الفجر ومن مياه البير أو نبعة الوادي تملا الجرار

وتمتطي جوادها الذهبي، لتنقذ أميرة القلعة الاسيرة، كفارس مغوار

480848_10151779289233185_2115223480_n

تلملم جدائل شعرها المنكوش، تزينه ببعض الماس بالياقوت بالمرجان بالاقمار

ترتدي سوار امها في بهجة، تختبي من الملامة، في خفة خلف الستار

تتمايل نشوى بثوب جدتها العتيق، بعبق التين والياسمين ولون المرج والحنون والازهار

217656_345299815552836_1966095705_n

اريد ان اعود طفلة لا تقرأ الجريدة… لا تسمع الاخبار

لا تعرف الحروب، لا تتقن الهموم، لا تفقه السياسة لا تكتب الاشعار

اريد ان اعود طفلة في ثنايا الدهر ملعبها ومخباها

اريد ان اعود طفلة نسيها الزمان، ودونما التفات مضى بلا انتظار

168759_179563485407924_2660277_n

حنانيك يا دهر رفقاً بذلك القلب الرهوف، انه قد ذاب شوقاً لايام سعد قصار

اريد ان اعود طفلة تغفو ملأ عينيها، وتصحو مع عصافير السنونو، لا على قصف ودمار

حنانيك خذ قلبي المكلوم واطحنه دقيقاً، خذه وانثره ملحاً اوشرابا، فالارض ظمأى لعدل الغفار

Death by Music


To have a roof above your head,  dance to their tune 

To feed your family, dance to their tune

To find a job, dance to their tune 

To keep your job, dance to their tune

To get medicated, dance to their tune

To travel abroad, dance to their tune

To polish reputation, dance to their tune

To get good references, dance to their tune

To avoid prison, dance to their tune

To breath, dance to their tune

To stay alive, dance to their tune 

Yes, rejoice and keep dancing

What is left of you?

A lifeless, miserable corpse, emaciated

A sac of skin, filled with doom and gloom

Rattling bones, dancing to their tune

حكاية عشق ابدية


376162_634722876557149_295443682_n

ذات ليلة مخملية سمراء مقدسية

دنا القمر من القمر

تعانق القمران

وبلهفة العشاق تبادلا النظرات والأشواق

11228518_10207072886413450_615343303161575462_n

همس البدر في اذن من يهوى

كفكفي الدموع يا حبيبة

قد أطَّ لمرآها عرش الرحمن

ولآهاتك الحرَّى المهيبة

اهتزت الأكوان

946021_216223151835321_35775858_n

بالامس يا أحبتي

روى لنا الدهر حكاية

عن كونٍ هام بقمرٍ

عن قصة عشق ابدية

بين الخالق والمخلوق

31618_506001709434415_284628689_n
بين الارض وبين السما

طأطأت رؤوسها الكواكب وسجدت النجوم

بين الصخرة والفردوس

قد مد حبل من نور

68363_363362730416586_40859279_n

هنا قبَّلت الثرى الثريا

هنا صلى الانبياء

هنا عهد هنا وعد

هنا سعد وحبور

378868_374095109349126_835145121_n

هنا طافت ارواح الشهدا

مع قرع للطبول

هنا ترتيل الملائك

تقتفي اثر الرسول

946699_663505147008392_292046288_n

هنا صوت الحق يعلو

وهنا الباطل يفنى

وظلام الظلم يُمحى

هنا جبر للكسور

Eternal Love Story


376162_634722876557149_295443682_n

Once upon a velvet night … A Jerusalemite night

The moon approached the moon

Two moons embraced

Like, true lovers, they gazed and exchanged tenderness

11228518_10207072886413450_615343303161575462_n

The moon whispered to his beloved’s ear

Sweetheart, let me dry your tears

Your tears shook the Throne of the Most Sublime

Your dignified sighs shattered the cosmos

946021_216223151835321_35775858_n

Yesterday, my beloved

Epoch told us a story

About a Universe

Who fell in love with a moon

A never ending love story

Between Eternal and mortal, Infinite and finite

31618_506001709434415_284628689_n

Heaven and Earth entwined

Planets bowed down, and stars prostrated in awe

Between a rock and Paradise

A rope of light unfurled

68363_363362730416586_40859279_n

Here, galaxies kissed earth

Here, prophets prayed in adoration

Here, an oath… Here, a promise

Here, joy, bliss and delight

378868_374095109349126_835145121_n

Here, souls of martyrs flew above

Buoyant, to drumbeats below

Here, the chanting of angels

Following footsteps of the messenger

946699_663505147008392_292046288_n

Here, the sound of truth is loud and powerful

Here, falsehood is defeated

Here, darkness of oppression does not stand a  chance

Here, hearts are consoled, wounds are healed

This love I have for you

Holds me, lifts me, carries me through

When all is dark

When pain is deep

When love is scarce

When friends are few

This love I have for you

Holds me, lifts me, carries me through

A Refugee


mama baby2

I too, was once a refugee

Shipped away in a truck

Wearing two dresses and jumper

In the heat of summer June

24076_332693616306_306817171306_3981597_5300988_n

Fearing for her children,

Mama, ran away with four daughters

The oldest was seven and new born baby boy

Thousands upon thousands, fleeing for safety

223356_10150167034991307_306817171306_7105955_6839602_n

Unlike many, I survived the bombing

Unlike many, didn’t drown at sea

Day after day, I waited to go home

Listening to the news, ever since

Hoping to hear “Palestinians, time to return”

24076_332693776306_306817171306_3981605_7218164_n

A refugee in Libya, stranger in a strange land

Teacher asked, “where are you from?”

Full of pain, guilt and shame

I couldn’t pronounce the name

24076_332693721306_306817171306_3981602_7723181_n

Lips sealed, and mouth dried out

I trembled and cried, sobbed out loud

Palestine, Palestine, Palestine

Raged in my anguished brain

Palestine Pictures 406

Living on donation and UN aid

Flour and oil and sardine cans

Used clothes and shoes with holes

Too much to bear, for self-respecting souls

56

Children too, weep loss of dignity

Rob of homeland and rape of identity

Children too ache of humiliation

Of having no place to call home

When Words are Abused


 

Isn’t it absurd that some of the so called Jewish “israeli peace activists” leave the racist, violent and supremacist community of Jewish “israelis” to brew in their violent narcissistic delusions of “chosen-MESS’ and “divine entitlement” and come to Palestinians to preach “love, peace, equality and coexistence” !

Crypto Zionists in sheep clothing blather much about “love”, “peace”, “equality” and “coexistence”, and they shun, block and try to isolate Palestinians who talk about liberation or mention the word resistance.

Crypto Zionists in sheep clothing don’t want to see Jewish “israelis” prosecuted for their crimes, evicted from land they violently usurped or dispossessed from property they forcibly stolen at gunpoint, let alone seeing them hurt by Palestinian resistance.

Those gatekeeper who are not ashamed of defending the “right” of Jewish “israelis” to live in “peace and security”, while at the zenith of their brutality and barbarity, burning babies alive and chopping infants to pieces, will defend them even more when the real fight is on, and when their brethren face the possibility of prosecution or retribution.

 

“There is NO “equality” and “coexistence” between serial killers and their victims

No “equality” and “coexistence” between the raped and the rapist

No “equality” and “coexistence” between the oppressed and their oppressors

No “equality” and “coexistence” between robbers and those whom they robbed

These very beautiful words have been abused in order to protect the future of Jewish “israeli” USURPERS and to enable them to REMAIN on STOLEN land UNPUNISHED while KEEPING the LOOT

Love… Peace… Equality… Coexistence

These seemingly innocent words have been utterly misused in the context of Palestine.

Gatekeepers, who are interested in protecting the future of Jewish “israelis” and in ensuring they live in security and prosperity on STOLEN lands, use this word as means of perception management, to create a false paradigm in which the world is duped into thinking that “israelis” have a “right” to stay on a land they utterly looted, destroyed and disfigured. Their aim is to offer and prepare for a cruel “solution” in which mass murderers are protected and absolved from facing prosecution and armed robbers are shielded from GIVING BACK stolen lands and property, and from paying COMPENSATION and from the RESTITUTION of Palestinian land to its RIGHTFUL OWNERS.

Gatekeepers do NOT belong to the Palestinian camp of LIBERATION, they belong to the camp of violent supremacist Jewish invaders.

For example, look at the mission statement of “Humanity for Palestine” H4P, (created by world banker Peter Cohen, who played naive and changed it when it was exposed)

How to recognise gatekeepers?
Gatekeepers often insist that Jewish “israelis” have “legitimate claims and concerns” and have the “right” to live in “peace and security” on lands they have STOLEN

The litmus test to discern real supporters of Palestine:

1) Support of FULL LIBERATION of Palestine

2) Support of FULL RIGHT of RETURN of Palestinians

3) Support FULL RESTITUTION, REPARATION and COMPENSATION for seven decades of ethnic cleansing and slow genocide

4) Support of Palestinian RESISTANCE in all its forms

5) Support of PROSECUTION of Jewish “israeli” criminals
