David vs. Goliath

Clamour and thunder broke the stillness
Sirens of ambulances futilely chased the violence
Pulsating hearts, feeble bodies and wearied visions
Grimly beheld the myriads of carcasses
Their eyes in asunder, squelched off their dreams
Bodies scattered, deeply wounded and blood flowing
Yet, as if put to rest; peace bestowed on them

Oh Palestine! is your land sacred

Nakba continues to this very day
Millions turned homeless, leaders ruthlessly slain
Women are dishonoured and children starve
And yet, we are the one identified terrorists
Our only crime is to profess ‘another’ religion
The sacred land we live in,
But, Sacred, Thy we could not find

Oh Palestine! is your land sacred

I will kill my enemy the heartless soul
Vanquish their plans, retaliate to every atrocity committed
I may not have ammunitions like them
But still No, I will not resign
I will hurl stones but not in vain
Cause every drop of my blood is testimony to this land’s sanctity
And then once again, David will kill Goliath!

Oh Palestine! is your land sacred
