In Palestine: Innocent kids.


They too had tears
Could have cried till they were heard
But a stag that left a scar

They too had eyes
Could have gazed till they died
And yes they did now they gone

They too were innocent souls
Taken away from a world of opportunities
Could have seen their own future

But innocent lives
Not so innocent to mandated hearts
Not so innocent, to the world

They too were talented
Futures brighter that the smoke of a missile
Could have lead a better world

But innocent gone astray
Who do we blame?
They too could testify of their hunger

A world too small to feed their minds
A town so small to convey peace
They too were intelligent

Could have negotiated better
And the world would come at ease
Innocent little souls,
Thou have left an empty world

They too were poets
Could have written about the Gaza strip
Innocent souls
Taken too early from our lives

I dream of a world better than it is,
And they could have realised my wishes
Of a world consious enough to maintain life
Innocent kids shot by missiles.
