Border Hopping Under the Radar:
Israel & The Palestinian Territories
Maybe if I would just pretend to be something I’m not.
Stopped speaking my mind, walking so proud and just went with the consensus flow.
Forgot my dreams, beliefs, history, desires… just do as they do, as I’m told, and keep my head down.
No freedom, no expression, no dreams, no voice, no identity.
It seems so easy, so simple.
It could all be mine, if I could just tell them what they’re dying to hear.
Surrender to their will, collapse under the pressure and give in to the demands.
Would this stop the injustice? Would this end the abuse? Would even this fold bring peace?
These grudges run much deeper than the living and further than this lifetime.
They would not be happy until I am face down with nothing left. Chewed up and spit out again and again.
If they only knew what my life was really like and what I went through.
I feel like slipping and falling and giving in, but it won’t happen- I’ve already accepted to never be accepted. This is the price I pay and the sacrifice I make.
I wish you knew.
