I wrote this after seeing a news clip on TV, there was a bombing and children were running and one child fell and then the clip was gone and I didn't see what happen to the child and that night this is what I dreamed.

Does Anybody Out There Hear Me?

I'm a child in a war torn country.

  Flaring bombs are close around me.

I can hear their terrible sound. 

Hiding myself here underground.

My hungry body is weak.

I drag myself to a hole to take a peek.

Fear runs through my bones.

Terror please soon be gone.

Blood stains on the ground.

Dead bodies lie all around.

I can smell the stench.

It makes my little stomach wrench.

I cover my ears to stop the roaring sound.

When earth rumbles as tanks roll by.

Fire falls from the sky.

When will it all end?

Can I ever go home again?

My parents are gone.

I know not where.

Does anyone out there even care?

What's to become of me?

Will there be a country left to see?

I cry, wondering if I will make it through the night.

How long must I stay hidden down here out of sight?

Do you feel my fears?

Do you see my tears?

Does anybody out there hear me?

Of course there is suffering. But there is so much more! out of view.
do you write this way because you are there? or looking through their eyes?
this is the question.
good pen.
