Tear of a child (war poem) is my perspective of how these wars are affecting people and kids in that area. These are the people who are suffering,who lost everything for something they don’t even understand. Who was part of a fight they never started, yet they are the ones that lose everything.

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
