My Gaza Strip

Why do we allow so many others
To control our precious lives...
Why do we let manipulative parents
Slice us apart with unforgiving knives...

We are both grown damn adults
Who just happened to fall in love...
We allowed our beautiful friendship
To become a precious gift from Above...

We didn’t allow our historical differences
To get in the way of our mutual attraction...
We found a place of understanding and respect
To become a gift of tremendous satisfaction...

Sometimes when our very own families
Manipulate our relationships and emotions...
They try desperately to control our feelings
And fill our minds with conflicting notions...

But then comes the unfortunate day
When the familial pressure becomes too much...
You say to me “You are my rock”
But then you throw me away, as such...

But my love for you is still real
And I’ll patiently wait here for you...
I know it’s only a matter of time
Please know my heart is forever true...

Once you discover that our true love
Will always and forever win...
I’ll be ready to share with you our love
Once again, and again, and again...
