The Difference

Poem By Rudy Hossam

In the middle of the night
My cell phone rang
My friend annoyingly woke me up
To tell me watch the news

Definitely it wasn't a nice time 2 call
I hanged up and didn't bother to move
The next day we met
She asked if I watched the news
I laughed at her and said of course not
Her face turned red with anger
I didn't understand her
But there seemed something strong
I quickly asked what's wrong

She told me...
'Children are dying...Blood is everywhere...
Israel isn't letting a day free...
They've no nothing...
And people like you prefer to sleep
Then to show care
From where do you expect victory? ? ?
And we just say Israel don't do that! ! !
It's just not right! ! !
When lazy people like you are around
Why would Israel care? ? ?
Why would Israel stop war? ? ?
If you don't care
Why do you blame Israel that she doesn't? ? ?

Gaza is a river of blood...
A mountain of skulls...
People are injured...
And there is no medicine to cure...
Was it to much just to watch the news? ? ?
Do we no longer feel? ? ?
Where did people's rights go? ? ?
Where did animal's rights go? ? ?
They treat animals better then people in Gaza! ! !
What is the meaning of that? ? ?
Is that something normal? ? ?
I can't believe what I see! ! !

Gaza we are all for you...
We will never surrender...
And if you aren't interested...
It's your choice...
But when your turn comes...
Don't cry for help...
Israel wouldn't stop...

When she stopped talking
My tears where unstoppable...
I was so speechless...
So ashamed of myself...

But my friend reminded me......
'It's Never Too Late To Make A Move'

Very Vexatious Seen, Beyoud Explain the Happenings, Really Joining with you bowing our Heads before them, very painful situation. Hearty Condolence.10++
Well, I think you've brought your friend's call/ deep concerns to us with emotion. The slight spelling mistakes will always be a'tiny drop' compared with the sincere feelings voiced through your poem. Keep writing, Rudy! And as far as the topic is concerned, as I write, we can already talk of a 'move', though still fragile, some people say. Thanks for sharing your poem(s) Maria
Rudy it's really good the way you wrote it i enjoyed reading it go bless plastine and its poeple
Conflictual issues are based on the might in this world not on justice. I see we should consider the afthermath of our action, if it satisfies us that is good or we should wait and self fortify till we would be able to win.
A very honest and heartfelt piece Rudy - - - - and a 10 from Fay...

Never Give Up

Sometimes life is against you
You see it turning......
From dark to darker
Wishing it's just a nightmare

A Friend

Why do I need a friend?
She does me no good.
When I’m sad,
She tries to make me glad,

In Your Eyes

In your eyes I saw everything new
And in your eyes I saw everything which grew
And in somehow I knew
I was meant to be with you

Love From First Sight

I never believed in love from first sight
It’s said to be but it’s never right
People talked about it all night
As if it’s clearer than pure light.

I Just Know One Thing

I don’t know when this life started
I don’t know when it’ll end
I don’t know how things began
I don’t know how things were
