Oh rascal children of Gaza. 
You who constantly disturbed me with your screams 
under my window. 
You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. 
You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower 
on my balcony. 
Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. 
Steal all the flowers. 
Come back… 
Just come back… 

- Khaled Juma - 

Palestinian poet, author of children’s books, song's lyrics writer 
and plays. 
Born in 1965, lives in Gaza.
