The Beginning Of The End

Nahida Izzat
Exiled Palestinian

This is not the last battle
This is not the final blow
We have made the U turn
This is the road with no return
A pivotal battle on the path of liberation

Be prepared
It might even get more ugly
More grief and pain
But at the end of the tunnel
The light is glowing
insha’ Allah
Just read the writing on the wall

The birth of a baby
Takes incredible energy
Patience, courage and willingness to sacrifice
Sacrifice one’s comfort, sleep, normality
And even one’s own life
A mother goes through unimaginable pain
It even gets more acute
Towards the end
But then, suddenly
Before we know it, it’s all over
Life is born
First breath is taken
A baby screams
Of joy and relief
Mama and Baba cry
Such is Freedom

Nahida Izzat: "I am -a Jerusalem born- Palestinian refugee living in exile for over 40 years. I was forced to leave my homeland, Palestine at the age of seven during the six-day war. I am a mathematician by profession but art is one of my favorite pastimes, I love hand-made things, so I make dolls, cards, and most of my clothes. I also write poetry and participate in dialogues with known and unknown friends as I believe that communication is the first step to understanding, I believe in building bridges, not walls. My shy nature hinders me from public speaking, so I try to compensate for my shortcomings by writing! I started writing some years ago when my friends insisted I should write about my memories, experiences, and my feelings as a Palestinian. So I self-published two books, I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story. [Biographical information: Growing Gardens for Palestine]
