My Son Kidnapped

                 

                                         My Son Kidnapped

                       My story is thee only one I needed to write  
                     one year In captivity underground me and my son
                    days passed by we were prevented of food & water
  bombardments outside were heard, suddenly a militia ran towards my son kidnapped him to be killed running after him screaming his name I knelt to pray
         Oh my God without him I will die show him the way to come back
   sleeping on the floor one night I heard him call my name I knew he came       
                     we held each other tight our tears had no end.

    The emotional content in this piece is tremendous. That anyone should have to endure these hardships for someone else's greed is a hideous statement on our general lack of humanity to our fellow human beings. To survive such an event only shows your strength and gives hope and faith to all. Yours truly, Curt

    Wow Terry; That was sad, but I'm glad that you and your son are safe now. Wars are really bad. A lot of inocent people get hurt. Jesus was looking out for you. My respect for you as a writer, as a Lady and as a friend if you accept me. Please check out ( letter To A Friend ). Lucilla

    War is so horrific... especially for those called 'collateral damage'... that you had to experience such terror is reflected in the strength of your poetry... Terry (wonderful poem)
