It Is I

It is I,
Only able to 
Sit before
The mischievous screen
Of the TV 
And watch
Palestine, my country,
Fall like a
Corpse
On cold land
	
It is I,
Deemed
To observe
The homes and 
Lives of my
Brothers and sisters
Turn into ashes
On an embellished LG
Flat-screen

It is I,
Spotting on the news
The olive trees of a
Palestinian fertile 
Field flame
Into barren barks 
Of nothingness

It is I,
Viewing the
Tanks and
Weaponed metal
Turn audacious 
Rock-throwers
Into heroic martyrs
While changing
Some channels  

It is I, 
My generous name is,
A Palestinian simply
Deprived of
Setting a foot into
Palestine.

    Incredible write. I am such strong feelings about that entire situation that has gone on since biblical times. Whose land and whose birth right..this conflict has been so fascinating for me who lives outside the emotion of it all. I know why this conflict will go and on but I dare not share it here. You have my attention!!

    Wow, Farah....a lot of depth and heart-wrenching emotion..... a lot of Palestinians end up moving or settling in other Arab nations, Jordan, Lebanon, UAE, etc.,because life is so hard in Palestine, originally a beautiful country before wars. Have you ever seen the Documentary "Occupied Minds"---do so. It's a dialogue between some peace-loving Israelis and Palestinians and what they think. Keep, safe, and maybe one day when you become a writer you can be a voice for your country. Love, Sara

    "Hello Precious & Gifted Farah Chamma!"~I hope that you are doing well young lady!? And yes, that's what my question was about! I was just wondering why it seemed to always be that way? And I can only imagine within this write, these sorrows that your precious eyes see, along with your tender heart~Frown~I wish these things were not so for "You!"~But hold onto hope dear! And keep your eyes on the bright that you find!~"Love & Warmth To You & Yours Loves, Always, John!":)
