Was It Just A Dream?

Born with happiness of tears,
Born with cries of smiles.

Young and free,
Hope and dream,
Imagination far from it,
Reality deep within.

Thorn and broken,
A world of peace.
Shattered and snapped,
A world of justice.

Was it just a dream?
They alone holding on to it.

Was it just a dream?
Never to be free.

Crawling I saw them,
Wandering in watery ground.

Was it just a dream?
They alone holding on to it.

Was it just a dream?
Never to be free.

When Will This End?

The air feels good,
Smiles all around me,
Running all over the greens,
Seeing it makes me happy.

Not all greens are green,
Not everyone that we see are happy.

The world that we live in,
Why is there suffering,

Crying for happiness,
Smiling in despair,
Why, i asked myself,
How long more will this be?

Victory One Day

No amount of food will give me my Liberty,
No shower will give me Democracy.

A week will pass soon,
But Freedom is still a long way.

You may shout at me,
I will just smile at you.

You may threaten me,
I will just say ‘Thank You’

I do know that we are all born free,
But as we soon realised,

We’ve been robbed of Freedom,
We’ve been cheated repeatedly.

Freedom,Freedom we will Fight on,
One Day,

One Day,
The victory will be ours.

Fly To Rest

For many days I have flown,
Seeking to lead all behind me.
For many days I have flown,
Trying to change those around me.

Fly high I want to be,
Up away in the pink blue sky.
I might be happy with it,
Without having anyone in my life.

I have flown too many days,
Finally realizing that enough is enough.
Now its time for me to say Goodbye,
Let me rest and be alone.

I may be gone for a while,
I hope the other birds will continue to fly.
Fly, Fly up high,
For you will continue the fight.

One Day Today

Today you fired at me,
Today you chased me,

One day,
When your Corrupt Leaders are gone,

You will realise then,
You will be alone.

Today my eyes are teary and pain,
Today i ran away from your tear gas,

One day,
When your Corrupt Leaders are gone,

You will realise then,
You will have no one to turn to.

Publish and Perish

Thoughts, minds and words,
Walk, run and stop.
Climb, jump and jog,
But there was no path.

You wrote a darkness of poetry,
Added with colours of a blind.
A statement to be printed,
To destroy is the ink.

Loss of Democracy it may seem.
An illusion of Freedom of Speech.
If FEAR is ever present,
The words will never be seen.

Voices From Gaza

Awake, there she is,
Walking slowly to where?
Searching and Crying,
Where are they, she asked.

When will this end?
When will we be free?
When will we be safe?
Where do we run to?

Who will listen to us Palestinians?
