His People’s Voice (For Mohammad Assaf)

From the dungeons

Of apathy, violence and death

He revitalized the spirit

Of his traumatized people

Mabrook, Son of Palestine!

With his Arab Idol winning voice

He launched  a clear message

Of love, peace and greatness

The answer came massively

In unity and jubilation

From behind the walls of Gaza

East Jerusalem, the West Bank

Every refugee camp
