Treasure Island

*...FREEDOM FOR PALESTINE! ...*


My country, my people, my land
Oh do I wish to be with my people hand in hand
With all wars abolished and all pain gone
With death and pain vanished that has been accepted for very long
Oh do I hope for my country’s independence and self-rule
Oh do I wish to destroy my enemies that have been and are still cruel
With all this evil destroyed and finally stopped
Then no more dreadful missiles could be dropped
Where finally a child can sleep silently in his bed
Not worrying about the next day if he’ll be dead
Where children are happy and finally sense the feeling of fun
Where a father could finally live in peace with his son
Yes, it’s my country Palestine
A country that will always stay mine
Oh do I wish the world could just for once say no and mean it
Oh do I wish the people in this universe could just admit
That what’s going on in Palestine is totally wrong
Then the war that’s still happening would’ve not stayed for so long
I don’t see the reason on why an innocent child deserves to die
I don’t see why a mother should look at her dead children and cry
We are all people...Our differences doesn’t matter anymore
Freedom and peace is what we all should be looking for
May the Palestinian pain and misery just fade away
That’s all I pray for every single day.

    I LOVE this poem! You express yourself impressively well. Not only do you you do that, but you also express the deep emotions of others, just like myself...and this is what makes a great poet!

    Sister, I also wish to be with my people hand in hand, and inshallah, this will be the case. Very soon. But like we say: patience is the key to: LIBERTY.

    Beautiful poem. A well expressed love for your country. I'm only 13 and I'm from Malaysia, but I'm also a Muslimah. I'm really sad for what happened there. My country tried all we can to help but it was really hard. Please check on my poem, Palestine.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
