I am not a Palestinian. I am not an Israeli. I am the product of the forgotten.

The living incarnation of a time when no frontier could trespass us. I am a Canaani.

I am being forced to pick a side.

But I will resist.

I will not SPLIT.

I won’t bow down.

I will resist.

Canaani. I am.

This poem is from a collection called TALE OF A FED UP BLACK ARAB SISTA.
