To My People!


It is time for my people to go back to water and dates,
Their conversation was so deep that I had to write something.
My people.
My people.
My people.
They call themselves Arabs – in arrogance -!
Oh how much I hate that word.
My people do indeed go beyond the word Arab.
My people are Muslims!
My people once had an excuse to ignore the outsiders,
My people once had an excuse to help each other,
Not anymore!
My people used to never fake their smiles to the enemy,
Now they do it to themselves!
My people lost in Versace and D&G,
Lost in space, the space of their true face!
My people! You watch, you listen, you speak, you walk, and you act…
Different than what you used to!
My people, you used to watch the little kids grow into heroes,
My people, you used to listen to the Earth Whisperers giving a daily advice,
My people, you used to speak and roar the truth even if it hurts,
My people, you used to walk on the sikkak to gather the neighbours,
My people, you used to act by the Islam for the Islam,
Not anymore!
O my people, it is time for us to go back to water and dates,
Their conversation was so deep that this is what I wrote.
