For The People Of Palestine - Poem by Ellias Anderson C.A ( Known as captain A)

In a holy land, with a strange feeling
A strange and calm feeling that comes from the heart of people
People who live pure, people who are valuable and kind
People who are great and faithful, men and women with beautiful minds

Their sky was calm a day, it was full of white pigeons
Pigeons which were the messengers of peace
A blue sky that was above a golden place
A place that was full of happy face

Green lands and greener islands with warm sunny farms
Happy people who don't think about a simple fight
Streets full of cheerful children and cars
But the time brings an unfair war

Some people think power can take everything from poor people
But it never can conquer the faith
Faith will destroy every satanic thing
It can bring bad things down, even the powerful kings

Farms destroyed under the boots of soldiers
They close their eyes and burst fire on the poor and innocent children of Palestine
Their laugh destroy that empty sky
Satanic plans those we know all are a lie! ! !

Power Vs Faith
Guns Vs Stones
Bullets Vs people
And Blood on the feeble

When a pure stone flies, a bullet tears the sky to hit for the answer
And then a heart that once was for a human stop beating
The truth is being hiding in our world
We should help the people of Palestine, not with our words! !

Where are the humans right protectors?
Where are the people who are loyal to humanities criteria?
Where are the humans to see a family that sleep with fear?
Where is a person to clean the children tears?

We have a ceiling to sleep in peace under it
We have security, we live in peace
But there…, suddenly the roof of a house will fall down
When they think they are sleeping in peace, they buried in the dawn

In the Name of Humanity, don't be silent
See the truth; see the pure bodies those just fell down
See the tears of mothers those live in stress
See the great unfair condition, see the real mess!

For the people of Palestine
People who live in a cruel situation
For the people of Palestine,
People who their rights are taken, , people with no sin!

    Justice delayed is justice denied. Between truth and falsehood, there's a conflict, to uphold one is to overthrow and jettison the other. FAITH KEEPS THOSE THAT KEEP THE FAITH - Mother Teresa. Wherever Power is focused on spirit, victory is assured on Will. I like the articulation and penning of the poem as it captured the injustice and suffering of the Children of God. Thanks for sharing the powerful poem with powerful message. A nice poem indeed. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. Remain blessed. (Report)Reply

    i think this is one of the best poems ive read from u till now! ....written strongly......im always sad about palestinians....its an obvious injustice in our world......and i believe that keeping silent about this issue has no different with killing a palestinian child! ! ! ....however many keep silent around us!

    really great..specially that it is from the heart of a young man...knowing that there are still teenagers caring not just for their own selfish fashion but giving attention to life and giving love for humanity...may we be pure and simple in heart as we journey through this life (Report)Reply

    I'm rendered speechless............. Humanity betrayed and punishment misplaced and the victims happen to be those who lived in peace. Now they live in fear, sleeping now seem to be sheer carelessness as they need to stay alert to fight for their lives. This is not supposed to be, and as you wrote, they need help that is much greater than our words. This poem brings hope to the mind and will give them a will to stand against the tides. Brilliant effort and thanks for sharing it. (Report)Reply

    The voice which speaks behind is very strong. When we get such picture of treating human beings as animal, then one big question arises in our mind-Are you stepping back to the primitive age? How could a man can treat a man like this? Heart-touching, politically aware poem.10+++ (Report)Reply
