29# Another pile of rubble

Updated: Jan 26

If I had superpowers

I would give speech to rubble

To listen and remember

The stories it had sheltered


I would ask the rubble

To echo the laughter

And sing the memories

Of those it had silenced


I would beg to know

The tales and secrets

Whispered by the children

When no bomb was falling


Stubborn dandelions

Forced out of the earth

Who dance in the dust

To rise from the ashes


Like a Palestinian child

Resilient and proud

Whose life was forfeit

From the very start


If I had superpowers

I’d beg the forgiveness

Of those whose only sin

Was to be born in rubble
