Prayers for Gaza

No more tears left

My eyes are dry

As I watch the news unfold

The heartache is unbearable


It’s slaughter in Gaza

Fire, death everywhere


UN is meeting

Around the table they all sit

With food, water, light

The room is warm


But no water, food, light or heat

For the people of Gaza

Nothing for Gaza

The UN is meeting.


How many days, months, years

Have they lived

Without basic human dignity

But the UN is still talking


How many men, women and children will die

Before the UN does something

So many deaths, so much destruction

Crying, screaming, sobbing


UN does not hear you Gaza

UN is in meeting

But you’re in my prayers Gaza

May God be with you.
