Gaza Warrior 

During the Israeli war on Gaza, the donkeys helped the displaced people more than any of the world leaders.  

Deprived of water, denied of fare,
In Gaza’s siege, a burden to bear.
Donkeys emerged, compassionate haze,
Carrying the wounded in love’s embrace.

Himar*, symbol of compassion and grace,
In the heart of love, a sacred space.
Through war’s shadows, it bore the weight,
A silent hero at love’s steadfast gate.

*Himar is the Arabic word for a donkey.

Youth's poetry ignites my quest, Against oppression, I protest. In Palestine's struggle, voices rise, For freedom, peace, justice, my cries.
