GAZA, I WEEP FOR THEE


Gaza, I weep for thee. You see, I stand over here shackled and chained and all I can do is weep. For when I scream, my screaming falls on deaf ears. When I rant and I rave I am viewed with suspicion.

My kin and my neighbors all wonder and aloud, “why do you protest the killing of vermin?”" Vermin?” I asked and the chorus responded, ” the Palestinians are vermin and terrorists!” But why should that be? Israelis are free but, not Palestinians. The Palestinians live in camps. Concentration camps that are really the holding pens of sheep being prepared for slaughter. When the last Palestinian is slaughtered, will anyone REMEMBER? Anyone? Will anyone care? ANYONE! Oh Gaza, I weep for thee.

Weeping is all that I can do for you see, over here I am shackled and chained to my opinion that the killing of innocent men, women, and children is genocide. Oh mommy, I said the ‘g’ word and used that ‘g’ word in association with Israel. I might just have well taken a shotgun and shot a lawyer.

Genocide on Palestine by Israelis. I am a pariah and a criminal and I am a “supporter of terrorism!” Because I questioned the slaughter of Palestinians. Well, whoops and sorry. That must have been my bad! Oh Gaza, I weep for thee!

You are lost and dying and NO ONE CARES AND NO ONE LISTENS! My kin and my neighbors are blind to the horror and will NOT hear the crying of innocents being led to slaughter. My land is lost and my nation is lost and my kin are lost and my neighbors are lost.




A very great man once said, “it is better to die on one’s feet in the battle for justice than to die on one’s knees begging for mercy!” So let it be written, so let it be done. Oh Gaza, I weep for thee. Stand up and die at the hands of Israel! Someday maybe in one hundred years or five hundred years, someone somewhere, will read of your slaughter and ask the hard questions that our world today ignores. “Why were the Palestinians left to be slaughtered at the hands of an unjust Israel and the complicity of our world?”

Oh Gaza, I weep for thee. You see, I am shackled in chains of censorship and mistrust. The weeping is all that I CAN do.

The Interview With God Poem

I dreamed I had an interview with God.

“So you would like to interview me?” God asked.

“If you have the time” I said.

God smiled. “My time is eternity.”
“What questions do you have in mind for me?”

“What surprises you most about humankind?”

God answered...
“That they get bored with childhood,
they rush to grow up, and then
long to be children again.”

“That they lose their health to make money...
and then lose their money to restore their health.”

“That by thinking anxiously about the future,
they forget the present,
such that they live in neither
the present nor the future.”

"That they live as if they will never die,
and die as though they had never lived.”

God’s hand took mine
and we were silent for a while.

And then I asked...
“As a parent, what are some of life’s lessons
you want your children to learn?”

“To learn they cannot make anyone
love them. All they can do
is let themselves be loved.”

“To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to others.”

“To learn to forgive
by practicing forgiveness.”

“To learn that it only takes a few seconds
to open profound wounds in those they love,
and it can take many years to heal them.”

“To learn that a rich person
is not one who has the most,
but is one who needs the least.”

“To learn that there are people
who love them dearly,
but simply have not yet learned
how to express or show their feelings.”

“To learn that two people can
look at the same thing
and see it differently.”

“To learn that it is not enough that they
forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.”

"Thank you for your time," I said humbly.

"Is there anything else
you would like your children to know?"

God smiled and said,
“Just know that I am here... always.”

    Remember the laughter, the joy,
    The hard work and the tears.
    And as you reflect on the past year,
    Also think of the new one to come.
    Because most importantly,
    This is a time of new beginnings
    And the celebration of life!
    Let your toast for the New Year
    overflow with joy, love, peace, prosperity
    and good health my friend!
