War Poem - Tear Of A Child

I do not know when mom will return
I wait here for the promise that I was given 
I am waiting for my food 
I hear people crying 
And I can’t go outside as I’m alone

I hear the thunder of jets
The sound of bombs hitting the ground
I am really afraid as to what I should do 
I really think I should go out 
But I can’t break the promise I gave

I feel the hunger rising 
And the pain of my bleeding legs 
I have been waiting for 3 days now 
I really wonder why mom hasn’t returned

Now I know… 
I see my mom dressed in white 
I see her smiling at me 
Oh, how I wish! 
Wish I could join her soon 
Just like she has joined with dad and my brother
I only wish to die 
Only then I will be saved from this hell

    Sadly, we seem to be so far away from living in harmony and peace in this world. Thank you for sharing. If everyone spoke up, maybe things could change. Who knows.

      Very strong and good write. The innocent are always the ones that pay in any war, even the soldiers are innocents that have been pulled into conflict by those they serve.
