The will


The will

After the shooting of 4 months old baby Iman Hijjo, I heard a poem on one of the Arabic satellite channels, I drafted a general rough translation, and this poem was the result.

Iman… a baby with a tiny tender body

So soft and pure

A smile ever so beautiful

A gentle touch… delightful face

Big brown eyes 

A baby… a baby with feelings ever so strong


You saw those who raped your homeland

Just before you were shot by Zionist … occupiers

With a bullet in your heart

Depriving you of your mum’s sight


It’s ok, it’s ok sweet heart

Heaven is wonderful

Heaven is wonderful and it suits you!

A princess so smart

The pain… the blood… the deep wound

Couldn’t wipe away your gorgeous smile


They gently wrapped her soft body

With a flag of Palestine

A white lacey veil hugged her hair

Iman the bride of Palestine!!


Surrounded with clouds of love

Carried over passionate shoulders

Iman flew over their heads

She saw her mum crying

She cried with a loud voice: mama

Mama, sweet heart don’t cry

Don’t cry!

Don’t cry my open wound

Don’t cry the slaughtered child

Don’t cry my running blood

You are not alone

The stones of my country

The trees of my country

Will speak to you

Mama, bring to life little children

Don’t say they’re only young

A tiny spark… a tiny spark

Can make fires burning with flames

To grow strong  they need strength

Lots of love and heaps of stones

With the call of "God is the Greatest"

Most Kind… Most Just… Supremely Devine

The flag of Zion will fall down

And up will fly the flag of Palestine


Their oppression have no chance in the land of purity

Their evil deeds cannot survive

The Holy Land will be free again

A glad tiding from a Glorious Lord


Mama, wipe your tears away

Show me your beautiful smile

My death is only a gateway to Heaven

Next to my Lord

Welcomed by angels

Immersed in springs of love and joy

Mama, if they killed millions we will gladly die

We will die mama for Palestine to survive

Palestinians are at the heart of the conflict in the M.E Palestinians uprooted by force of arms.. Yet faced immense difficulties have survived, kept alive their history and culture, passed keys of family homes in occupied Palestine from one generation to the next.
