    I am Jenin

    I am Jenin
    and my heart aches with the the taste of fear, the smell of vanquishing hatred, blood spilled and smeared in the toy-strewn rubble, puddled in the dust of where I used to live.

    I am Nablus
    and I still hold in my hand
    the keys to my father's empty ransacked home.

    I am Gaza, crowded, teeming with life,
    but my childrens' bellies are distended with hunger,
    their eyes huge with anger and fear.

    I am Jaffa and Acra, the stones of ancient arches now crushed underfoot.

    I am the sunswept hillsides and beloved valleys no longer grazed.

    My orchards and olive groves have been plowed under and destroyed,
    my shrines desecrated, my women raped, my men humiliated and killed,
    my children, -- oh my children!

    I am Jerusalem, the radiant beloved Bride,
    raped, waiting on her once-golden hillside
    for The One who speaks of Justice and Love.

    Abandoned, alone, I speak out
    but the world hears neither my screams, nor my cries
    nor my reasoned pleadings for justice
    and common sense if not Mercy.

    Desperate, enraged, I strike out
    and am further condemned.
    My soul is battered but not broken,
    my hope is shaken but not shattered.

    (I watch heartsick from afar
    helpless, tearfully, endlessly pleading
    that the rulers of my beloved country
    would do the right thing
    which they refuse to do.)

    (Jenin, I share not your blood,
    and dwell in the land of your oppressors
    but my soul, oh my soul,
    is of you, Jenin, is broken for you, Gaza.)

    (I look out on my hillside,
    lush, verdant, alive --
    and I see the scars
    where once was your world.)

    Our Lord, the same Lord,
    Whom we worship in different ways,
    has not forgotten you, Palestine.
    He does not abandon His own.
    Your crowded multitudes will persevere
    and will yet prevail!

    I am Jenin
    and my birds shall sing once more,
    my orchards and flocks will rise from the ashes,
    and my cities will hum with the bustle of many peoples.

    Our God, God of the Oppressed and the Oppressors,
    will bring Justice, and Peace,
    His Love will prevail and I shall return to my home

    The Prophet said, "Nobody who enters Paradise likes to go back to the world even if he got everything on the earth, except a Mujahid who wishes to return to the world so that he may be martyred ten times because of the dignity he receives (from Allah)."
