Mustafa’s Only Care

Mustafa’s only care

A chap

A stone

A kuffiya

A will and a fist.

*

The jeep

The soldier

His guns and powder

His mask

His elbows, knees and helmet.

*

A hamlet.

*

And People run

And pull and push

And come and go.

And people fall

And rise and fall.

*

“RUN!RUN! RUN!”

*

Yet, Mustafa does not care

And he does not scare

Because he cares!

 *

“Shoot to kill!

Damn it!”

And then they fall

And fall and fall.

And Mustafa rises

And lights the way

*

And people run

And pull and push

And come and come.

They rise and rise

For Mustafa cares

***

This poem is inspired by Mustafa Tamimi whose untimely death at the hands of Israeli soldiers showed the light to many people to come. Rest in Peace, brother.
