Hello 

GoodBye

And so much more

A word that welcomed me into this world with open arms

That beautifully showcases my religion and culture

My people

I never tire of hearing it 

It floats along the Mediterranean and Red seas 

Bring life back from the Dead 

From the North all the way to Jerusalem and the Holy Wall

Our Wall 

The way it rolls off my tongue is as delicious as a Shawarma

It is not a word that isolates anyone

It is how we welcome in our day of rest each week 

It embraces who I am

It will guide me for eternity 

Shalom
