Show me the Way

Nahida Izzat,
Exiled Palestinian

Dear God
Ten years ago, I sent you a letter
Innocent, hopeful, trusting and pure
Now I'll send it to You again

“Dear Most Loving
Here I am
An empty vessel
Lift me… Fill me… Use me
As You wish
My will is nothing
But Yours”

Today, I am back
Crawling on my knees
Knocking on Your door

Empty handed
Filled to the brim with horror and pain
Looking evil in the eye, how could I not be?

I thought I’d seen it all, before!
What a fool I was!

Dear Most Kind,
I knew it would be a rough ride
But, really, not that rough!

Dear Most Wise
I am not asking you “Why did You create evil”
I know You didn’t!
You just bestowed free will upon us

Dear Most Loving
I am not asking “Why don’t You stop them”
That means taking their free will away

Dear Most Graceful
I am simply asking You for guidance
In this ocean of wickedness and gloom
What do You want me, little old Nahida, to do?
What can we in the Camp of Goodness do?
How can we stop this evil, once and for all?
Could you show me the way?
Please show us the way


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]
