Powerful, merciless Israel, dropping bomb after bomb, 
how do you look in the mirror knowing what you have done. 

Children cry, children die, armed only with bricks and stones,  
rubble where their home once stood, parent-less, scared and alone. 

Defenseless at your mercy, they pray with all their might, 
tell me army of Israel, how do you sleep at night. 

Drones, helicopters, fighter jets, relentlessly target civilians, 
Intimidation, devastation, cowardly attacks on Palestinians. 

British and US governments, why do you sell your soul,
their blood is on your hands, your people are making a stand. 

We detest, there is civil unrest, expect us at your door, 
we protest, our numbers grow, we will not be silenced anymore. 

Gaza we are with you, you are not alone, 
the masses have awakened, these hostile acts won't be condoned. 

They've taken your land, they've taken your home,

I awake to your touch

Tear drops like rain drops 
run down my cheeks from my eyes 
this pain I can't hide. 

Sunshine warms my heart 
cleansing my soul of sorrow 
banishing black clouds. 

A cool icy breeze  
vanquished negativity 
erasing my fears. 

Bright shimmering lights 
streaked through the star speckled sky  
igniting my faith. 

The silvery moon 
cast soft subtle rays of hope 
releasing my gloom. 

I held out my hands 
and embraced the solitude 
of this tranquil place.

p*ss it really any wonder
that poets have flown their nest
fleeing from hurtful words

Why does she wear so much makeup
does she know how false she looks
doesn't she have any shame

Staring at this empty glass
reminiscing about my past
perhaps I'll pour a little more
