- Nur Adriana Haziqah
Not Silent Anymore
A stone’s throw away - describes the nearby
It's unfortunate I can only watch from afar
We’re so lucky to see a beautiful sky
Compared to our Ummah who experience the bizarre
Rocks thrown as a form of defence
Bullets and bombs used as "self-defence"
Roof knocking? Are you serious?
Could you be any more delirious?
Boulders to shreds
Buildings crumble one by one
Bullets to heads
Safety? There’s close to none
The history, they ignore and forget
Disallowed retaliation – but assassinations, they let
Taking the lives of children, spouses and siblings
A “ceasefire” only started more ruthless killings
It's been happening for 73 years
Why do I only know about this now?
Why aren’t people raising an eyebrow?
They are protecting Al-Aqsa – an irreplaceable
No, this is not about religion
We need to protect the people, and the region
But they are content with what has been fated
The Iman of our brethren is just so strong
Jannah for the fallen, for surely to Allah we belong
Now's not the time to be disengaged
I see people from different countries in solidarity
Spreading the word to give the ignorant some clarity
From Him, a reminder to everyone
These are the words from the Qur’an
“Verily with every hardship comes ease”
So do keep Palestine in your prayers, please
