    Hi Vicky; This very touching and heartfelt. Some people might forget, but some never do. The scars are there and will never be erassed. I too wrote a poem on this. Scars left behind.Thanks for sharing... Lucilla

    This is a human roller coaster ride of emotion, I can not even understand the hell that is war, but this is a well expressed example of why they say war is hell on earth. I'm sorry to read what you dear lady had to go through, but thank you for sharing it with us, maybe it will make other think twice about inlisting. cheri also thank you for your cool comments on my davy jones poem. cheri

    I wont say much about this. It left me empty and outraged for everything we lose in war, mainly our humanity. But I am making you a favorite poet now!!

    Hello Ms. Tsiluma. No words can honor your masterpiece you have created for others to envision. You have an amazing way with words and sadly, the reader can easily see what you describe. How these things happen is beyond my scope of realization. I thank you for being courageous enough to share this with us. Connie.

    A powerful, passionate poem! A reminder as my mother used to tell us, "You are eating your white bread now", here in these United States of America! It may come as no comfort to you now, but it is promised,"The meek shall inherite the earth!" Just believe! Cynthia Singing A Sad Song

    Vicky this is sooo moving. the saying is true, "evil abounds when good men do nothing". If the devil is allowed to run amok, sadly more souls will suffer, yet all the pretty suits will still find their next meal, the world has become callous and the collective good conscience has all but vanished. very great needful write, Carl

    Vicky; it is so sad that this kind of thing happens in WARS. If the leaders of the Countries were not so greedy maybe this things would not happen. They are thing that are never forgotten. Thanks for sharing . Lucilla

    Powerful and moving. You have a gift and are brave enough to speak of things others choose not to see. Continue educating others. I get it!

    Life is full of contradictions, we are humans but we sometimes behave worse than animmals, we often know what is right but choose to do wrong, we know we should coexist but we put up barriers to one another. Awful things to experience and impossible not to be affected.

    There are those who never forget. People around the world pray violence like this stops and realize only amazing love and what you believe God to be will bring forth his mighty vengeance against evil. May your life be filled with sweet memories to surpass the past.

    Oh my, Vicky, stunning, devestating and perfectly written...'Freedom means nothing until a cage is placed over it' I remember commenting once that I was amazed at such wisdom and insight in one so young...I see where it comes from now...would you mind telling me which country you live in?...I am fairly good at geography and am SO close to figuring it out but it escapes me at the moment - Tim
