The Daily Life of Kawther Salam

  ..: I'm a Refugee :..
June 16, 2003

My days are empty.
My nights are empty.
My life is empty.
I turn over,
Inside an empty circle,
Asking,
Stars and moon,
Stones and trees,
Birds and flowers,
All mankind,

Looking for,
Mother.
Home.
Land.
Looking for,
My self.
My love.
My identity.

They all said: "you are a refugee",
You are a Palestinian.

The time will come.
The future will come.
Tomorrow,
The homeland will come.
Tomorrow,
The sadness will be over.
The trees will bloom.
The birds will sing.
The injuries will recover.
Tomorrow,
The love will come.
The peace will come.
The freedom will come.

Tomorrow,
We can dance
We can talk.
We can sleep.
We can dream.
Tomorrow,
The peace will come.
Tomorrow,
We will return.
