Sparks and Ashes

Sparks and Ashes

A child was just born at Helmand

His soul flew "zero to infinity"

An old grandpa held a piece luck wile 
Eating out a crested bread;
Grand ma beside, sewing a torn rugged apron;
The daughter-in-law, for a shower in a bucket of water, entered;
The son went out hoping, something to eat for night.

Eying the land where living is a miracle;
Dying is the only wish for wounded --no doctor no drugs.

Angels are flying over head  
To take the souls rest in peace

Live of leave your soul, for, the angel lurks
In a land wrapped up with ashes and sparks.
