oh woe is me
so busy blaming others
for the mishaps of thee
you see yourself through the eyes of the beholder
others see you as the pain of their misery
weeping for our nations fragility
we seem to have forgotten
the international suffering and infirmity
we think you are the devil of destruction
you think we are the blood sucking terrorist of ruination
all living in one bubble, under one roof hoping for reconciliation
but will it come? they say the difference between Arabs and Jews is that they have no place to go.
so what would the difference be between us all? 1 square meter by 6 degrees of separation?
is it my hair? his nose? her shoes? his gun?
what will it be?
the west may compare us to uncivilized monkeys, but aren’t we?
some developed, some under developed, some happy, some bewildered and manic.
but isn’t the air we breathe shared, or is that too divided into class of heirachy?
“never this..never that!!! the war must go on. let our lands be at one…”
to their ears blah blah blah!!!
to our ears we too soon will be saying blah blah blah!!!
and soon it will be hitting the bells and songs of our churches and mosques, Buddhist temples and even parliamentarian desks.
