Wake up – Palestine

Wake up - Palestine Poem Jessie Louise

This painting is called “The Cameleer” by Jerry Wayne Downs, check it out here on Etsy.

Wake up - Palestine , 
Pray to God - for Palestine,
Drink coffee - scroll Palestine,
Stand in the shower - realisation about Palestine,
Drive in the car - try not to think about Palestine,
Go shopping for food - People are starving in Palestine,
Check country of origin stickers - because of Palestine,
Rush home and put it away - to get back to Palestine,
Sit down and work - now for Palestine,
Post, write, record - Palestine,
Scroll the feed, oh my God - look what they did to Palestine,
Heart breaks - for Palestine,
Rage swells - for Palestine,
Tear falls - for Palestine,
Post, write, record again - for Palestine,

Pick up kids - ask about school, think about Palestine,
They tell me it is refugee week - they tell me about Palestine,
Another tear falls - proud of my kids, sad for Palestine,
They complain about homework - then they remember Palestine,
Kids have no school in Palestine,
They're bombing the tents in Palestine,
They're killing babies in Palestine,
Dinner bath and bed - think where we would be if we had been born in Palestine,
Kiss them goodnight and watch them sleep - is Kiss them goodbye and watch them die in Palestine,
Go to bed - scroll Palestine,
Pray to God - For Palestine,
Write a poem - for Palestine,
Do whatever I can - for Palestine.

  1. Thank you for these beautiful words Jessie. I hope you don’t mind but I shared your poem on IG.
    Especially because they kicked you out.
    If you’d rather I don’t, please let me know and I will remove it.
    But your words resonate with so many, it would be sinful not to share.
    Thank you again!
