End of “Innocence”

There were cheers of celebration

when the truck came

her doll lay on the side, crushed..

she was about to board the plane

full of thoughts for her vacation

when the blast happened

all that was left of her was a hand

he loved going to school

unaware of the turmoil in the valley

when the rubber pellets hit

only one eye was left to see

she danced around in new clothes

excited about her sister’s wedding

she was in no man’s land when they fired

another person against the forces killed

she was praying to god in the hospital

when the drones came

all that was left of her was just the fingers

still holding the prayer beads..
