Children in War

Empty massacres

Small eyes are watching

Their words

Going up to the empty sky

Fading away without any realistic effect

No one notices

No one understands

But children try to find

Their times

Dreams

And hopes

which they used to have

But, a whirlpool of hopelessness

Captures them

They will have

An illusion of silence

During the worst commotion


Their pleading surely exists

In their voices without sound

In their writings without letters

In their words without being said

In their breathing

In their minds

In their silent screams

And calmness in the madness
