Sahar _____, 35
Where I Am From…
I am a girl of the mountains,
A girl of Palestine,
A girl of hope…
From my beautiful childhood and successful life
From something that is not something,
Whenever there is a window that is closed,
God opens another window in the sky,
From where am I…?
From the mountains which I used to run over,
From the mountains I used to rest upon,
And then wake up again full of energy.
Do I complain about the dawn?
This the sunshine that gives us light.
What do I say to the dark?
I stay up, fascinated by its beauty.
What do I have to say to my heart?
My heart belongs to Palestine
What do I have to say to myself?
About what? and how? and why?
My soul and my life have always been
For Him and because of Him.
I am the darkness, I am the daylight,
I am the fall, I am the spring,
I am from Palestine…
