This was a poem written by Amal Donqol, the poem has been turned into a song so many times. And ever since, this has been picked up by the hard-liners and the people who have suffered the most on the hands of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The song is about not compromising, not even they exchange that for the gold. The line, I like is if they poke your eyes, and replace them with jewels will you be able to see now?
It's a nostalgic poem about the history and the blood that has been spilled. The song has been picked up by so many causes, it's like a rallying cry of what has happened and why one should not let it be forgotten.
