Living in the land of wondering

Looking at old photos, my old face wonders if I'm 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.
