The War

 

 

Every single day is a living  war!

Itís not too close. Itís not too far.

Twenty-four hours in a battlefield;

Some live; others are killed.

 

A baby born in warm atmosphere;

He cries while his parents cheer.

He wonders what happened or he scares?

Nobody knows! Nobody cares!

 

As teenager he has to learn;

Something he loses; something he earns.

For his future he has built up his mind;

His attitude, and his behavior inside.

 

To survive in the long run;

He has to fight and has no fun.

 

(Germantown, March 3, 1998)
