Tears of the Innocent

with 8 comments

Trudging along the dusty roads, in the summer heat
With a parched throat, fear encompassing our toddler feet

what wrong have we done, for we are li’l kids
wish we knew why we are punished, for whose evil deeds

while we hide under the ground in fear
a disquieting thought that the end is near

Hearing the shells bite ino the skin
our our family, kith and kin

We long for a ray of hope, the warmth of the sun
smiling upon us, a day of muted guns

Mommy please wake us up from this horrible dream
Take us in your arms, we want to play by the stream

Wake us up to the sweet alarm of chirping birds
not the clangs of the broken shards

Please tell us these scars will fade
Please tell us life’ll take us ahead

Please wake up from your eternal sleep
and dry our tears, for we can no longer weep.
