Life Through Her Eyes: 32


Unwilling to forget

Unwilling to forgive 

Unwilling to compromise 

Unwilling to surrender 

Unwilling to give up on life

Unwilling to give up to defeat 

Unwilling to give up the dream

The land, the right!

Our Unwillingness is what keeps us going 

Our Unwillingness is what makes us great

Our Unwillingness is what scares others

Our unwillingness is the will to our way 

Our way which is the only way

Our way which is the toughest journey 

Our journey is the most important journey

And our unwillingness to stop is the way to reach home! 

Home is where my people are 

Home is where the olive tree is 

Home is where the demolished house is

Home is where the ruble of rocks is 

Home is where the wounded is 

Home is where death is   

The home is my home

The land is my land

And the right is my right 

From the river to the sea 

My home will be free
