Within by Bethany Rivers

Syria within me

I feel your desolate desecration

Thousands of crumbling empty houses


Palestine within me

I feel your  Land robbed  Olive trees poisoned

Crimes against The Wall


Europe within me

Every flag of every nation

Only the wind carries freedom


Blood battles within me

Of the generations to come

Scars and fences needing to be undone


Russian pogroms within me

In the bones of my Great Grandmother

Wounds of  dislocation


The thirst within me

Fountain of my heart still learning

To make itself heard
