In Gaza

In Gaza, I heard a sound

In Gaza, I heard a boom

Not sure what it was

But obviously people knew

Another raid

Another bomb

Another child

Another burning mom

Black fog spread

Couldn’t breathe

Couldn’t see

Mother, mother

A child kept calling

A fearful voice

A trembling one

Like when had broken a vase

Mother, mother

Come back to me

The voice faded

The mom died

That’s the everyday life

Of a Palestinian

In Gaza

His Gaza

Our Gaza

A boom

A kiss

A goodbye
