An ode to Sumud

by frankbarat22

Gaza

is being bombed again

Our TV screens

trying to fool us again

Israel

thinks it can gain

by afflicting pain

But

the ones that know pain

Are 

on the other side

of the wall

They

have conquered pain

more than once

They

have faced it

again and again

And They

are ready to do it again

Because They

do not fear

They

are not scared

They

are almighty

They

love

and They

will prevail

Because

the will of the oppressed

will always

be stronger

Than 

the will of the oppressor

The Jewish State 

that never was

And its allies 

that will be remembered

Have not

yet

learned the lesson

The people of Gaza

The people of Palestine

are patient

and steadfast

They know

that a bully

never wins

They know

a bully

is scared

They know 

a bully

is shortsighted

And they know

a bully

has no future

They are smiling

patiently waiting

aware and conscious

That they

have already won.
