Unexplained misery


The wars of Palestine are never ending

Insisting to never leave anytime


As the many years pass

As I get older than a stone

As the millions of olive trees uprooted


The wars keep coming back with vengeance

My nightmare keeps revisiting

 I run away from it, seeking refuge in the woods

With a majestic lake greeting me camping

And the fog lifting at sunrise

Gaza keeps erupting with bunker bombs


I keep screaming, for the bombs to stop dropping

I keep praying for a miracle

I keep thinking this is a bad dream


And when I awake


From the previous day

Is just the same.
