Birds of Sarajevo

 BIRDS OF SARAJEVO
It seems the birds of Sarajevo
are gone--where did they go?
Some only say they've flown away
or scratch their heads, and just cant say.

It seems the songs of Sarajevo
are stilled--where did they go?
Some only sigh, while others cry
that all the songs were just a lie.

It seems the youth of Sarajevo
has died--where did it go?
Some only say it's hides away
from all the pain of yesterday.

History is haunting. Especially modern history. We said it must never happen again, but it did. It always does. Your poem has touched me deeply.
