Normalization is not peace – We Are Not Numbers

I want peace too.
But you ask me to disarm,
while you still hold a gun
and point it at my face.
At the same moment that
you’re talking fast,
a Palestinian girl cries
as your bulldozer destroys her home.
A young man from Gaza
is turned back at the border,
unable to fulfill his dream.
Goods made by my people’s hands
are denied the markets
that could earn their makers’ a profit.

Real peace is not possible
as long the blood remains.
It can only be washed away
by the cleansing power of justice.

Normalization is not peace
