I support Israel. I oppose anti-semitism.
I support a Free Palestine. I oppose illegal settlements.
Where can the persecuted find a berth,
A stable land that can be called a home?
No company of shepherds or of cattle,
Just bombs and drones that give birth to death’s rattle.
Grave beckons whether you lie still or roam―
You might as well be born under the earth.
Whether we choose to celebrate or mourn
No meaning lives unless Life is reborn.
A Life that rescues the lost birth of good,
Gives truth and justice hope and strength to be
And recreates a world of could and would:
The will that conquers power and will bring
A birth that lasts and changes everything―
A birth not of the self, but empathy.
