Palestinian youth tell the human stories behind the numbers in the news

Gaza City lit up at night
Gaza City at night

 

One night at my window,
when the city lights came on,
Young hearts cheered.

Streets filled with lovers.
Other doors opened to night guests.
I waited for a door to open,
for a soul to meet mine.

But then the city grew silent.
The city lights turned off.
I felt only her absence.
