Lest I Become

If I were what I long to be

I’d ascend the sky and soar
About the sun
I’d pray my prayers, I’d jump,
I’d run

I’d race all the winds
Until the sun can no longer be
And then rest upon a cloud 
Looking down at the sea

I’d twinkle with the stars
And crave upon their lust
I’d dance with the moon
And sway with a gust

I’d be in joy of liberty
If only for once
Away from all the turmoil
Protests and allegiance

Yes, it is I, a wanderer, a 
Palestinian under fire
Roaming within my thoughts
In dreams I desire

For a day maybe... when
Weapons are no more, 
When blood runs warm in veins
And not cold on tiled floors 

I’ll only dream today…lest one day I become

    Are you a Palestinian? My heart breaks for you and your people. I am watching with great anticipation to see if This new Administration will finally be the catalyst to ensure your people some overdue justice.

    It is so sad that so many in the world cannot have the freedom we often take for granted here in the United States. A world at peace would truly be a wonderful one. Nice use of imagery to convey your thoughts. Keep on writing. Wishing you that liberty you so desire. Karen

    I will never understand war, unless it is to truly defend our freedom to abolish genocide. My heart cries over the needless innocent bloodshed. I don't blame you for wanting to fly away to where only beauty resides. Love, Shar
