Land of wondering

Painting by Basel El-Maqosui

 

Looking at old photos,
I wonder if I am still living. 
In this land of wondering,
We are attacked and killed.
The world looks on.
In this land of wondering,
I lost my friend, my brother,
My sister and my dad.
In this land of wondering,
I don’t understand why the world
Still falls at Israel’s feet. 
In this land of wondering,
I am a dead man walking,
My life in Israel's hands.
