Day by Day

Day by day
As the wisdom's of life grow darker
The brutality sadly becomes routine
And the future manifests itself in the present
A child runs barefoot
Fear not little one, the bombs are loud
But angels will run beside you
You shall run free, to speak
Of what no one should ever see
Tears rain down, washing away pain so deep
Old photos, burnt and torn
Your only memories to keep
So be content to rest
With the painful knowledge
Of having what is not
Day by day

    A poignant write about embracing what you've got no matter what.. well-penned.

    Arthur, i feel the power a guardian around me always... living day by day, is a hard mission to accomplish, the sorrow of the world, is what many will not see... you painted a deep and sad image here. you are a good poet, with true vision... Linda

    '...if the Russians love their children too' ~ Sting. Would that all the warring nations would think of their children first before making tragic, 'adult' decisions. A fine piece, Arthur. Best wishes, Keith

    Touching, Arthur. And skillfully done. Sad that in this 'civilised' age there are still poems like this to be written.

    This is sad, however it is very well written. This is something a child should never have to see. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Thank you, if we saw the world through the eyes of a child, a better world it would be.
