"Love conquers all"

Don't you dare believe
The exploitation they reveal on TV
Palestinians attacking Israelis
It's the total opposite, you see?
They are her loved ones lying on sacred grounds
Suffering under the rubble of beloved homes
Counting the painful hours, coming closer to being found
They are her innocent children bawling, shedding a thousand tears
As they sit upon her massacred terrain, looking for their martyred mothers
Hoping to be able to bellow out all their pain and fears
Chain between four stone cold walls are brave prisoners
Who sold their souls for their motherland
Courageously hanging their hearts off of the strong branches of her native olive trees
Blinding out the world's ignorance
They represent their true identity
But unfortunately, that's not what they show on your blurred screens.

The author's comments:
It's supposed to be def poetry, but it's slightly shorter. It's about how the world thinks that the Palestinians are the only one attacking Israel. How the media plants ideas into people's minds, and how all those thoughts are conceived, and if you believe it, you have a blurred screen.
