My country

IDF Israel Palestine Gaza

My country
Is of pain

My country
Is of sorrow

My country
Is a chorus
Of wildness

My country
Is the song
Of tribulations

My country
Has been whipped
By torture

My country
Has been denied
The light

My country
Weeps loudly
In the dark

My country
Is naked and bruised
By fate

My country
Is not allowed
To breathe

My country
Waits to be born
Patiently

My country
Is a dream

My country
Is a grave

My country
Cannot wait another minute

My country
I carry its borders
Around my heart

My country
Do not doubt

You exist
You love
You thirst
You give

And you will rise

Embracing justice
Embracing me
