Anyways here is a poem I wrote about Gaza. It didn't really come out the way I wanted it to. But it does say one thing. That I stand by Gaza even though I realize that I can't even BEGIN to imagine your frustration. But if I were there I would be angry too.
If I lived in Gaza what would I do?
Would I stand up and fight,
Or would I crawl under my bed at night,
Would I run and hide,
Or would I stand by my brother's side,
Would I cry at the saw,
Or would I search through the rubble like a lion with his paw,
If I were in Gaza what would the world expect me to do?
They can't go to a court and sue,
As a Gazan I wouldn't have a voice,
I wouldn't have much of a choice,
Would I be allowed to feel?
Or would Israel just expect me to put up with they feel should be my daily meal?
So we must ask are Gazans allowed to be angry and upset?
Or should they just live their lives excepting to be kept?
Caged like an animal would infuriate me,
I would long to be free,
Then if I saw the people die,
It would make me want even harder to try,
To try to set my people free,
And say Israel let us be.
