"All humans are members of the same body Created from one essence"

"Human beings are members of a whole in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain."

The Olive Tree

The Olive Tree

Concerned with the quest for a peaceful resolution

Of the Holy Land,

And not concerned about just another declaration,

Another conference,

Another summit,

Another agreement,

This poem is for you.


On both sides of the Wall waiting for a solution

Or in exile,

Waiting for the end of 39 years of occupation,

Waiting for civil equality,

For political stability,

For economic certainty,

This poem is about you.


Against collective punishment,

Show genuine empathy,

Sharing and commitment,

Two separated states,

Free of repression,

Free of injustice.

Blossoms on the same Olive tree!


For the loss of Eden,

For the sorrows of exile,

Use Integrative Power

To part the Red Sea.

We are All chosen,

Free Israel Olive Tree!

Free Palestinian Olive Tree!
