Growing up in the middle east in the mix of wars and conflicts, and remembering how we used to draw guns and tankers and fighter planes in school when we were little, and being pretty much brain washed by the idea that we were better or the chosen people for that matter and we should fight and eliminate others who don’t believe the way we do… and losing family members to these ideologies that made a holy land so unholy in my opinion, and inspired by the vision of late King Hussein, I write this poem…

This I believe

What’s yours?!?

For you to judge me, think again…

For me to judge you, that’s insane…

For them to make us what they believe…

For me to hate you till you leave…

For you to hate me till I believe…

“””””””””””””””””””””””””

What in the world we have become…

A world of some and some…

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’

It was things we have created…

To keep us separated…

‘’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’’

To believe, you have to love…

What did they create…

Words of wisdom filled with hate…

“””””””””””””””””””””””””

It might not be their fault…

It is we to blame…

For playing this game…

So will that we became…

The opposite of the same…

“”””””””””””””””””””””””””

Love is my belief…

No book will change that…

Are you willing to get out…

And love without a doubt…

“”””””””””””””””””””””””””

Cross , Crescent , and David Star …

I don’t care what they are…

I have a better one by far…

Love in a big open jar…

That’s my belief, what is yours???
