To all the children in Palestine – By Rhiannon Ashby

This poem was written to all the children in Palestine:

“You do not look back,
You do not give up,
You can only go on,
Through the darkness
And into the light.”

“What if we go on
Only to find more pain?”
You ask, afraid.
I answer, “Then it is not yet the end,

Because in the end
It is only a passing thing,
This shadow;
Even darkness
Must pass.

A new day will come,
There is still some good
In this world
And we have not forgotten you.”
