Between Two Countries

Winds and tides of water were pushing everything
Homes were demolished
People lost their homes
Pictures, books, and memories were left behind
Families were split apart
Stores were looted
Gun fires were heard
Sewage was covering the streets
Chaos and disaster
Deceased were left on the streets for days
People were refugees in their own country
They were asking themselves
What they have done to be punished this way.
 
A voice coming from the TV:
It is a natural disaster
We have to unite to overcome the tragedy
A picture of a young black boy crying
covering the TV Screen.
 
Thousands of miles away
Bombs were falling on innocent people
People were killed
Museums were looted
People lost their homes
People were exposed to depleted uranium
Deceased were covering the shore of the river
Soldiers were pointing their guns on people
Soldiers shot a forty year old pregnant woman
A picture of the unborn child covered with blood
The placenta is still attached to his body
Chaos and disaster
People were refugees in their own country
They were asking themselves
What they have done to be punished this way.
 
Between the two countries
A woman was listening to Fairuz* singing
"We will be back to our neighborhood one day"
She looked at the sky and asked Him:
Is there a difference between the two?

*A famous Lebanese singer
