Watching the news emotionally drained
The injustices we see are never named
I watch my families smiles fade.
I watch them die and feel their pain.
What the world doesn’t see is very cruel
How can we stand by and just watch them rule
Where’s your heart?
Do you feel sympathy
Do you not have any dignity
I feel all my memories turn to dust
My entire life continues to rust
This isn’t some movie or some game
Its a genocide, it brings shame
I can see the fear in Palestinians’ eyes
Families have no more ties
I see the life they have to live
I see the life they suffer with
Cities bombed and houses fall
But our people always stand tall
Big dreams my family will maintain
Our faith in God will always remain
