YaLa Poetry | The Ones Who Lead Us to the Troubles, Who? by Mahmoud H, Palestine

The ones who lead us to the troubles, who?

Now I am going to tell you bro 

The problem is not the two fighting kids 

The problem is with the greedy elders 

Even though they get grey and bold 

They are like mountains, selfish, and solid 

Yes, they remain

Like this mountain

With this selfish brain 

They transmitted this to the poor public 

Like a field who inherits the snake 

All kinds of change happened in the creation

But the disaster kept us in the same situation

Maybe we all had blind eyes from our mother 

Maybe we don’t want to see each other together 

Look at the nations who were lagging and dragging

How they melt like a song with changing 

Look at people who you called slaves 

Are filing the world with freedom flags 

Look at what the west did in Berlin

And you call them a “no emotions”!

To let the beauties wear jewelry 

They bull down walls of slavery 

Look at Europe in 1990 

Opened the east to the west widely 

Shame on us to keep talking, shame on us to stay apart

Shame on us to still say west and south 

Look also at the world of civilization how they changed international laws 

And we instead of laws, are changing the colour of the ties 

On Whom we are putting our dependency? 

On the people who claimed democracy?

They give ten % to the needy 

And steal the ninety 

We became like a coffee poured in cups 

Poiled on the flames of death 

And every couple of years we create war and tensions 

For  someone to win the elections 

So if you are in your seventies 

Don’t blame us who are in our twenties 

And finally in this region, if we want to have a peace agreement

We should realize that this mentality is dangerous, and outdated.

And should be treated.
