Daughter of Gaza

Publications > Books > Poetry

by Arnel Banaga Salgado

You're born out of strife
before the Arab spring
your tribe is scattered
like dust dispersed
by the hot and arid wind
without a country to call a home
but I asked you to take refuge
with me.

You are stubborn, confused,
but gifted with seamless
beauty as pure as a
diamond but as
dangerous as a lion.

O daughter of Gaza
Lo' and feel the heart that pumps
the river of life in the labyrinth
of your veins.

Is it there or not there?
