Sixty-seven children have been slaughtered. Sixty-seven dreams have been shattered. Sixty-seven beautiful faces have now vanished. Sixty-seven vibrant smiles have faded. Sixty-seven beds are left empty.
Palestinian children, like all children, love to play. Palestinian children are longing for peace. The children of Gaza dream to be teachers, nurses, artists, engineers, and doctors. Palestinian children want to breathe. Palestinian children's lives matter!
(Palestinian children killed by Israel in Gaza in May, 2021)
It will require bit of humanity to: Lose yourself in serving others, Soothe their pain, Plant smiles on their faces, Brighten their day, Lift their spirit, And strive to restore them for a better future.
Your humanity, my friend Is your eternal legacy, which is more precious than your wealth, Education, and a lifetime worth of accomplishments!
writing spiral I'm writing the spiral I'm on my paper drawing my pencil I am on my paper and I'm drawing my pencil as all these faces that I see are just not adding up into anything I want to be or anywhere I want to go and no matter what you say I will never endorse it back to the life that takes your soul and make it go away
an abstract poem on my insecurities about writing poetry, lyrics, or just creating art in general.
Inside my mind, inside my dreams Faces roam around free They laugh, they cry, they die inside They live, they share But I don’t seem to care They scream and wail I take my gun and prey I bring to my head It brings me to my end And finally, god, finally They stay silent…
Once upon a time in this world that once was, There was laughter of children playing in the street Their faces weren’t covered with anything but a smile Church doors were open for service Education wasn’t an option as to teach in our homes We had no social distancing or stand 6 feet apart We spent our holidays as a family There were no laws to remove our freedom as it has come to be For all the generations to come will never experience what life was like when we were the land of the free.
