THE DREAM OF TOMORROW
Oil painting, 2000, 160X200 cm. by Ismail Shammout
Dreams are that (a) welcoming, vast, limitless space … Dreams can not be denied.
Would a life without (devoid) dreams have meaning?
We dream the impossible, yet continue to dream. We know our sacred homeland like a sacred right.
A homeland in its entirety for all its people.
Dreams forever have a limitless space …
None can prevent a dream ..
They said “I think .. therefore I am ..”
I say “I exist .. therefore .. I dream ..’
Can life carry meaning if bereft of dreams?
And the dream is free just as freedom ..
We know our dream ..
We know it .. and yet we still dream it ..
We know it a sacred homeland .. like a sacred right …
We know it in the depth of poetry, music and color, but it is more wonderful with its land & people. All of its people, all of its land.
