Only in Palestine

By Nahida the exiled Palestinian

In Palestine, good and evil assemble

In stark contrast

An epitome of creation

In Palestine, heroism meets malice head on 

No concealment, no pretence

In Palestine, kindness confronts bitterness

Mercy grows defiant

“Never forget and never forgive” mantra is brought to shame

In Palestine, walls all around 

Yet, sitting on the fence is no longer an option 

One must choose a camp

In Palestine, from prophetic schools saints and angels graduate 

Yet, out of sorcery spells fiends and devils are frothed into being

In Palestine, hatred is a chain, millennia old 

Pulling to Hell of depravity

 Beasts who promote

In Palestine, endurance is a meadow, blossoming through parched soil

Painting the horizon

Tears of elation and whispers of devotion

In Palestine, tenderness is a melody, sung by Gaza shores

Growing in abundance, filling hearts and minds

Dancing at twilight, healing girls and boys

In Palestine, love is a rainbow, shimmering above

 Lifting to Heavenly splendour 

Sublime nostalgic souls

In Palestine, faith is ocean-deep

Patience knows no boundaries

Sincerity soft-tactile and hope... sky-wide

In Palestine, sinners are repentant

The pious clothed in modesty and lovers intertwined

In Palestine, sisters made queens, brothers are protectors

Children are adored, fathers held up high

but under mothers' feet Paradise is laid down

In Palestine, the hungry is fed, the lonely is embraced

The lost will be guided and the searching will find

The woman of Rev 12 is now here, she is the prophet like unto Moses and Elijah Matt 17:3, Acts 3:21-23, Luke 1:17 delivering the true word John 1:1 from the wilderness to prepare a people for the Lord’s return. God our Father will not put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins. It never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer7:31, Jer 19:5. Turn your heart to the children of God. A gift is now delivered to the whole world as a witness Matt 24:14. Prove all things.
