I Come From There Comments

Rating: 3.9
I come from there and I have memories
Born as mortals are, I have a mother
And a house with many windows,
I have brothers, friends,
And a prison cell with a cold window.

Inhuman it is when a person is robbed from his own ground, his own property, his own land and that of his parents and grandparents. We must honour and appreciate other property. God is witness, man must fear God. This is a very touching poem. It has become IMMORTAL NOW. This poem has deepest impact on the readers. Immortal poem.

The quest, struggle and longing for a homeland comes alive in this poem. It proves that the word is more powerful than the sword. Thank you, Mahmoud Darwish.

I learnt all the words worthy of the court of blood So that I could break the rule. I learnt all the words and broke them up To make a single word: Homeland..... Fantastic creation...

Mine is the wave, snatched by sea-gulls, I have my own view, And an extra blade of grass. Mine is the moon at the far edge of the words, this is real poetry, use of words, the feelings it conveys and the philosophy..... u teach are marvellous..dear poet. tony
