They would still be riding their bikes and mothering their dolls.
They would still be sleeping in their beds and in their fathers arms.
They would still be answering back in the cheeky way that kids do.
They would still be playing in the school yard, Football, Hopscotch, Hoopla, Tag.
But they don’t do any of that anymore because Israel removed them from the world.
All that remains now are empty spaces.
Empty beds, empty fathers arms, empty school desks, empty seats in class, empty souls of of the parents, empty hearts of the school friends left behind...
