A Lioness of Palestine!

Fearsome and Awesome...

Lioness of Palestine!
Lioness of Palestine!

(LONDON) -  Look at you... my beloved


Look at you

This little fist of yours

Slams before the world

The final word

This little fist of yours

 Says it all

RIGHT is GREATER than MIGHT



 


The sparkle in your eyes

BLAZING FIRE

Burns deep  

Renders them to ashes;

Soulless shadows

Void of life

Void of love

Void of heart

Remnants of human beings 

They wither away




Before your magnificence

They bow down

Lost... Defeated... Humiliated...

Drenched in shame


 

Humanity you embody

Dignity you teach

Wonders you inspire

Tall you stand, my sweetheart

Tall you stand

 


What mother of glory gave birth to you

O great daughter of Palestine!






Your Tears



Your pain



 Your sacrifice


A Wake Up call

To a sleepy world

 A zombie world

A beaten world

Who forgot what it means to be alive





Lift your fist

Shake your wrist

Move the world

Beloved daughter of Palestine




Hear her ROAR . . .World

Hear her roar

 Hold her heart

Kiss at her feet

Hear her roar

 Be filled with Awe

The Hidden Truth

--

“To smile when confronted with the most severe oppression, is an act of Resistance rooted in unparalleled beauty.”

~ Jonathan Azaziah

"And I, a Palestinian from occupied Palestine, refuse to share
my homeland with Zionist colonizers"

 ~ Reham Alhelsi


"Facts" do NOT need laws to enforce, validate or defend them, what they require is research to examine their narrative and correct it for better accuracy and understanding.

“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”

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.
