somewhere in the West Bank

 

while the news blast rockets of contempt

the forces of pride and attachment trek through desert mountains

while some fight for a land they cannot take to their graves

and others pray to a God they cannot see,

while some in suits and big titles make laws

and carve out the earth in search of divisions.

A little girl walks to school

somewhere along the West Bank

a little girl walks to school.

She did not choose where she was born.
