Mourning of a Palestinian – Poem By Shaheer Pulikkal
Mourning of a Palestinian middle-aged man abducted by Israeli forces in front of his family – Poem By Shaheer Pulikkal
Here and there
One that was
In me and in you
One of a kind
At this moment I am not myself
Look at me
Touch my body
I was alive when they took me away
My wife was not a widow when I was dragged away, and
my children were not orphans.
This soil is mine
I am Palestinian.
My savings are the lives I gave up for this country.
I have nothing else.
Oh Palestine I am going.
After dedicating the whole revolution in my veins to you
