Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

Rafah-born author and poet Khaled Juma wrote a heartbreaking tribute to the children of the Gaza Strip amidst the missiles striking his hometown. At least 506 Palestinian children have been killed since Israel commenced its latest invasion of Gaza on July 8, 2014

What makes life valuable is that it doesn’t last forever, what makes it precious is that it ends. I know that now more than ever. And I say it today of all days to remind us that time is luck. So don’t waste it living someone else’s life, make yours count for something. Fight for what matters to you, no matter what. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live?

Không cần thiết phải nói mọi điều mình biết. Như thế không đúng kiểu quý cô. Thứ hai, người ta không thích có ai đó xung quanh biết nhiều hơn họ. Cô sẽ không làm thay đổi được bất kỳ ai trong số họ bằng cách nói đúng, tự họ phải cảm thấy muốn học hỏi và khi họ không muốn học thì cô chẳng thể làm gì ngoài việc im miệng hoặc nói bằng thứ ngôn ngữ của họ

Tôi của tuổi hai mươi (mấy).

Cùng Tâm lặn ngụp trong những tiệm sách cũ của thành phố, để bụi bặm và ẩm mốc bám đầy trên tay. Hoặc lang thang trong con hẻm lớn, đọc những bài thơ buồn, ngẩn ngơ ngắm phố từ một chung cư cũ, hay uống soda quất muối trong quán nhỏ ngay dưới chân cầu. Kể cho nhau những câu chuyện không lấy gì làm mới mẻ, về mất mát và hoang phí của tuổi trẻ. Không ai đong đếm hoặc đánh thuế những ngày uể oải, nên bọn tôi nhân một cuối tuần, đã thơ thẩn ngồi chờ nắng ăn tay.
