You are welcome to have my land

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to hear

The weeping olive tree, when pulled down

With the sharp, yellow teeth of your ugly bulldozer

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to feel, the agonising pain

Of my hills and mountains… torn apart

When hit by your merciless missile

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to see

The blood of my poppies, when fallen to the ground

Crushed under the cold metallic chains of your tank

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to taste

The bitter salty flavour of slavery,

Felt by my villages and towns

When under curfew for days on end

***
notice the little Hero
***

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to smell

The burning yearning in my orchid’s wounded heart

To be united again with her much missed children

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to hear

The cries of howling wind, mourning her little ones

Who used to play, flying away their black and white

Red and green kites

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to feel

The tight shallow breathing of my home and garden

Suffocating by your nerve and tear gas

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to see

The tears of my clouds trickling down their cheeks

When punched by the fist of your apache helicopter

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to taste

The sweetness of dignity felt by a stone

When picked up by a little hand of a brave boy

***

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to smell

The perfume of my earth, taking a shower

Getting ready to embrace the body

Of her beloved child

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to touch and heal

The deep bleeding wounds of my sky

Stabbed by your f16

Yes, you can have my land

When… you are able to teach

Your heart how to love

Every drop of water, gushing from below

Or falling from above

***

Yes, you can have my land

When… you can gently hold

Every grain of sand

And tell her how sorry you are

For causing all the pain she’s gone through

***

***

Yes, you are welcome to have my land

When… you fall on your knees sobbing

When are able to hear, whispers of angels

Chanting of saints and prayers of prophets

Singing words of love and peace

For EVERY human soul, not just your own

***

Then… and ONLY then

You are welcome to have my land

But then, will you ever do it?
