Gush Katif: I Remember


They would not budge

If it were them

Let go now?

“Hard”, “tragic”

                               In their words

No room for mercy

Self-annihilation

                           In my words

Tragedy strikes

Have we not learned?

                                             Words

Spoken by generations gone

Inquisitions, pogroms

                                  Not loud enough

Did they hear?

Maybe more

 

Our land whose?

                           Do you want my land?

No, peace

Back home

                         Do you understand?

Freedom at last

Gathering of exiles

                                Who is talking?

History here

One only
