My dear olive tree!

Every time i look at you I only wonder!
You were experiencing so much bloodshed on this land, colonization,  conflicts and recently this ugly Apartheid Israeli segregation wall!
Every day you breath tear gas, hatred of Zionism, sadness of families lost their beloved ones!
You even drunk blood instead of water!
Yet you still standing, watching in complete silence!

Yet you breath the tear gas and give us clean Oxygen!
Yet you still everyday teaching us lessons about the meaning of steadfast!
I only wonder how many lessons u still have to teach me?
And will I live enough to learn all your lessons and experience on this piece of this planet?
Thanks to you I steadfast! We steadfast!
Thanks to you I wake up with hope every morning that our day will come!

Your sincerely
Saeed Amireh
