Between Shame and Relief, I Stand - A confession by Samah Sabawi

Dear friends, 
this beautiful and moving poem about Gaza is by my good friend Samah Sabawi.  Samah has kindly given me permission to reproduce it here on Live from Occupied Palestine.

Samah is a Palestinian-Australian poet and playwright and she writes regularly for a range of media websites on Palestine and human rights.  She is also currently preparing for the premier of her latest play, Tales of a City by the Sea, which is a Palestinian story of love, separation and resistance  and is set in Gaza.  The play will premier in November in Melbourne.

Samah tweets at @gazaheart and you can check out her website, Tales of a City by the Sea by clicking here.  

in solidarity, KIm
