Half Palestinian, Half Jew
By: Muslima

Half Palestinian, half Jew,
What is this world coming to?
How did this become-
How is this real?
Totally two opposites-
How can I feel?
Didn't know before
Absolutely denied
Became the people I least expected
I wish I could hide
My memories resurrected
Others will now think I lied
A part of me has died
Totally two opposites
With a clear divide
Confusion from all sides over takes me
Death on both sides rakes me
Mother you never told
Damn it, sometimes I feel so old
But I'm not-
Growing I am
Grown I'll be
The question is: will this world ever have a place for me?
