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

A mantra for life

Bombed buildings

Let me say a few words;
I hope all of you focus on it:
Tell yourself every day,
"I know I will reach my target. 
There is zero doubt:
I will get to my target. 
No matter how many times
I'm beaten  down, 
DEFEATED, RIDICULED, REJECTED, DOUBTED, 
I do not care."

I know my target 
and I know in my heart,
no matter how long it may take,
no matter how dark the path,
no matter how much pain,  
or the shadows that confuse my sight,
with branches and stones looming
like beasts waiting to leap,
I will not be afraid or stop.

My mind is strong,
it cannot be broken.
My goals are clear in my sights.
I have a purpose to my life.

I will fight, I will claw, I will adjust 
and I will win.
