Pains of War

A bullet flies
a child dies
another mother's broken
But they don't stop fighting
and they turn their backs.
She cradles her child
that left her life
and screams
"Why, why,
Does this make you satisfied
My child is dead"
Greif sweeps over the weeping mother
as she kneals in a pool of blood,
and she screams and sobs
for the life of her child

Hi Rachel,

I was touched by the poems you put up. I hope I get to read more - they're well worth posting onto the Web.
