Write down:
Two states.... On or off.
On: Empowered and delivering.
Off: Without, having nothing to offer.

Am I off, I wander?
Being on is a statement in itself.
A statement of intent:
Stateful and having strong purpose.

Am I off, then, I wonder?
Thinking about it takes me places.
But being off means
Those places are not my own.

I'm spinning like a particle,
Imparting something...
Must be on.
Up? So I must be off. Stateless and empty.

Write down:
Two states. Being off can only mean
I will soon be on...
I will soon be home...
I will soon be...

The Palestinian Declaration of Independence, written by Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, was proclaimed by Yasser Arafat today in 1988.
