Gaza, You Will Be Free

Listening to the silence
That envelopes me
In its soft caress

“Lay your head down” it whispers
“The day will soon be over”

But it violently pulls back
As the booming sounds of bombs
Start to fill my ears
The screams
The cries
The agony

My mind it races
The pictures fly around
Children bleeding,
Mothers pleading
Fathers silently crying
Hoping, praying

Oh Gaza
Oh Gaza there is no peace
No peace in my heart nor yours until you are free

The silence that is my blessing will one day be yours as well
No longer will there be the screeching of rockets up above your heads
No longer will there be the booms and clangs of artillery demolishing your homes
No longer will there be the harsh voices of unmerciful militants ordering you around

There will be peace
And the silence will be yours

Oh Gaza, you will be free.
