Poems of Thobile Maso

The voice from Mid East

A poem by Thobile Maso©Tobile Maso

It was the cold time of the day
We have to pull off our coats
They point their rifles on our tummies
We struggled to pull through border gates
To bring the little bread to our children at home
Eritze in Gaza strip
Eritze check point of death

United Nations tell us why, why you keep on talking
But no action
People are dying in the Middle East every day/hour
Peoples of the world you are our only hope
We need your solidarity
We need justice
We need humanity

Where are you standing?
What side are you standing?
With whom are you standing?
Side by side, shoulder to shoulder take action
