Anomie is on the rise

Anomie : a sense of loneliness and anxiety

The soul itself , alone orginal and pure to the lonely.

Who made the rules, that said

You cannot be alone,

you must have friends.

Do you remember the time being

alone in your mother's womb

well, it was the best time ever,

not a care in the world.

until we fought our way out

screaming, and kicking

to be left alone in the warmth

of your mother's womb

The world has not forgotten you,

... Sweet flower of Palestine,
Your seed still grows where nothing will
Dare they call you Philistine.

This song is for the tender flower
That blossoms between the burning stones,
Their weapons cannot kill your spirit,
They only injure flesh and bone.

My memory will not easily forget
The lost child called Palestine,
Be ever strong when they hurt your heart
And know that I would give you mine.

God bless the child of Gaza
Be always strong and do survive,
Despite their every persecution
Your young spirit is still alive

the warmth of your mother's womb.
