What is yours is not

The sands shift under your feet

Pushed aside again

Empires trampled your past

Persia subjugates

The Greeks made you like the dogs

and the Pharaoh’s toy

Roman curiosity

Byzantine’s bondman

Caliphates and Crusaders

Then the Ottoman

The crowns of Europe betray

You are Palestine

The ghosts of the past haunt you

Violence holds you hostage
