By Mohammed Al Zoubi
I will cry…not because crying makes me weep
I will cry from life suffering
I will speak not because speaking occupies me
I will speak as the pain hurts me
I will protest not because I admire protesting
But because sins aches me
I will dream not because dreaming is for children
I will dream to forget agonies
I will sleep, yes, I will sleep.
