War Child

There is no sense of hope, nothing to make me smile,
no one to help me cope, to make things feel worthwhile.
A feeling of loss, a question, will peace return again?
When hate is the boss, all questions are asked in vain.

The days just go by, and the sun sets upon our perished land,
I find no reason to cry, I find no one to make me understand.
The thorns beneath, are covering the roads that lead to posterity,
They prickle my feet, and my trail of blood becomes my legacy.

very nice, moving and portrays the point. It is so sad to see havoc created by war and disaster. i cant even imaging how many war children there are in the world who have to shoulder to cry on and no one to go to.

Twirling through the mists of time,
A hurricane most grand.
It’s finally hits these shores of ours,
Disrupting every land!

Freedom is such a pious thought!
But free to pursue what?
Free to grab whatever sought,
Does such destruction wrought!

If only one could atleast extend a hand and shoulder for comfort. But alas our prayers are all we can offer as a lament for their cries.

Wonderful poem as always D. rebel, thank you for sharing it here.

I was always against the whole war in Iraq and what I don't understand is when people after seeing such images of today's Iraq, they still don't change their minds.
