Nakba

We used to roam and run freely across the fields,
eat bread, and drink, and dance with family

and then, they started creeping in
with their tanks and guns

Now, we have walls
around our fields

little bread
little water

no power
no space

Instead,
blood

wounds

choking

All

of

us

bro-

ken

in

pie-

ces

in

a

desert

Deserted
