In another order

I learned to be strong

Seeing the beauty of nature

In the Hubeiza fruits

In the Coccinella septempunctata

In a dusty industrial urban quarter

To break paths

To Send letters against Carmel Beach Towers

To protest against the narrow interest

To promote the broad interest

They called me Zionist

They called me Sabra

I cleared a thorn after a thorn

And I did not stay soft.
