Diaspora, A Poem

Tags: Diaspora, VCI, Am Yisrael, Land and Nature

By Rivka Cohen

Sometimes exile cuts like a knife

Away from my home is just a half life

Don’t know if feeling this lost is worth the cost

How long can my soul stand

to be away from the Holy land?

From Boston I can clearly see, it’s Am Yisrael that calls to me

And my greatest fear, do I betray my people while I stay here?

Friends lay down their lives on the front line

And I am in college biding my time

Is this for them, or is this for me?

Will the nation benefit from my degree?

I come to terms with reality

Exile means I am not yet free.
