El meu insurrecció

To Said El-Said

To Said El-Said

In your heart rests the key to your home in Palestine
patient beyond all measure of tolerance
each beat echoes closer to home

A farmer
you have sown seeds in all corners of the earth
growing sweet fruits
delicious vegetables
vibrant flowers
shared with grateful masses

A sailor
you have culled grand fish
willing to sacrifice
proud to fill your nets
to feed children
mothers and fathers

A carpenter
you have built mansions
where wisdom flourishes
generation to generation

A lover
you have embraced
supported and calmed
without want of reward
or mention

A friend
You have offered all that you are
in every moment
with a promise of more should you find it

Your heart
weighed against the feather
can’t fall upon the scale
yet strong it is
carrying that key
comfort in knowing home

—–M. Dennis Paul

One is fortunate in life to have known honourable individuals. Warriors brave, strong and true. I count Said among those I have met through social media. I thank the universe for his stopover in this world.
