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)
