Al-Awda -Palestinians Uphold Their Right to Return

Al-Awda -Palestinians
Uphold Their Right to Return*


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Ripped from their roots
The people of the Land
Wait suffering
Starved, thirsty
Beyond oppressed
Assaulted by fascist
Annihilators of the rights
Dignity, lives, liberty
Self -Determination fills
The ancient souls
Of the People
Of the Holy Land
A resolves so intense
The earth shakes
With the need
For the Holy Land
To be returned
To the Sacred People
Of the Land
Not procured
By a false Zion
Stealing the sacred
Fire of lives
Who uphold
Their rights defiled
By the evil intent
Of a military regime determined
To assassinate
Rights so
Fundamental
The earth screams
In agony assaulted
By the Zionist
Defilers ripping sacred
Roots from a soil
Washed in the Blood
Of prophets, saints
Martyrs
Washed in Blood
Of the Lamb

* Inspired by the 2nd Al-Awda International Convention April 16-18, 2004
