Our Children of Gaza: 2014

I am the tear-stained face
In the snapshot without a name
I am the price you pay
In the war of words
Day after day after day
 
I am the laughter
Hushed by the sirens
And missiles of the night
I am the darkness
After the blazing light
 
I am the silent scream
Trapped inside your head
The blood-splattered dream
You wake up to
In the birdless dawn of the dead
