About Dreams

They come alive
Before we know it

Dreams
Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians

(LONDON) - From the womb of agony

Dreams are born

Sweet and pure

We nourish and groom

And watch them grow

After living in us

Long enough

They come alive

Before we know it

We start living in them

Living…them

Special thanks to Uprooted Palestinians

_________________________________
Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.

She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles, and Palestine the True Story.

Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.

If you like poetry and are intrigued by the notion of learning more about Palestine, you can visit Nahida's blog Poetry for Palestine for more of her writings; prose, poems, letters and dialogues. You can write to Nahida : nahidaexiledpalestinian@gmail.com
