Passports & Doorways... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

         Passports & Doorways

To return 'and live at peace'
continues to be obstructed-
undermined by militants
sabotaged by Islamists
destroyed by Zionists- and hate mongers
rendering the right of return a threat
rather than an act of compassion
and personal accountability
honoring fair and just laws...
and the hard work required
to build a good life.

To return and live at peace
is to know that the past is past
and it is time to move on.

To return and live at peace
practicing diplomacy
and perfecting community.

To return and live at peace
or learn to live, dream and work elsewhere
anywhere generating a better world
where ever you might go.

UN Resolution 194 from 1948 : The refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible
