River to the Sea [Morgan E.]

A poem written by the amazing Morgan E., presented durning our class reflection. She has graciously allowed me to repost it here. Enjoy!

From the river to the sea

This land belongs to him and not to me

Oceans, deserts, and lemon trees

Was what I knew when I was free

Soldiers, checkpoints, and undelivered keys

A generation of refugees and shot left knees

Arab, terrorist, are the names they call me

What they preach to the world until it’s all they believe

This is the land I now know to be

The land from the river to the sea
