GAZA TO THE WORLD-THIS IS THE DARKEST AGE


Its written all over the frontpage
People in Gaza in rage
Resistance & Enemy engage
Yet the world doesn’t get the message
21st century we live...or in the dark age

Hospitals loaded with people, nothing! Not even bandages
Doctors, food, water shortage
Also safe ambulance passage
Yet the world doesn’t get the message
21st century we live...or in the dark age

Homes trapped in a cage
Continuous bombing on village. BOMB!
HUSHHHH! Silence takes the stage
Yet the world doesn’t get the message
21st century we live...or in the dark age

    Heartfelt, made me speechless about the injustice of this world. May God help the Palestinian from the terror of the State of Israel. Thanks for the read. (Report) Reply
