Nakba Day – Day of the Catastrophe.

I still can feel the sand in my sandals,

The hot air filled my empty chest,

With my children and grandchildren I’ve left,

An Empty House and Land.


How long will it take ?

When will I see again the Galilee sea ?

I still picture my House and my Land,

Even it is just now debris and sand,

Or is it ?

Isn’t my house occupied by people that have no right to it ?

Look! I still have the key, maybe they changed its lock,

Maybe they changed everything, moved every rock,

But my Heart and my Soul will never forget !


You may take everything,

Take everything if you want !

You may occupy every bit of land,

Claim it is yours by right !


But you will never stop the resistance,

We will not lose confidence, abidance, resilience !

  1. Yes it’s hilarious how concerns such as this one start looking extremely pointless when compared to the world news. Another part of the cold war, the actual real war that erupts, Russia-China fuel offer axis… Nevertheless here we’re with this social-media issues, – can we ever see the planet has changed? Iam not stating everything you write about is inconsequential, Iam declaring a certain amount of detachment is healthy. Thanks, Sarah @
