I heard the windows fly and break Mother called me and said to hide Pulled my sister to jerk her awake Screamed when I saw the wound so wide.
Another house was set on fire Children rushed to safety quick Can't waste time, no space to tire Inhaling the fumes, it made me sick.
Another soldier falls to the floor I don't know when this dream will end A masked man bursts through the door Will a helping hand he'll lend?
He led us through the rubble Of wounded souls and shattered dreams. Ash was made of roads once of cobble, Blood splattered along its seams.
We took cover behind a wall, I started to feel the hunger. For food? For life? Anything at all, For hope probably, because it began to grow dimmer.
All the children were crying For what reason? I can only guess All of us were silently praying, For survival, peace, salvation from this mess.
"You'll be safe here" the man had said. But all of this is a nightmare in itself. Mother's gone, father's dead I tried to wake by pinching myself.
BANG BANG BANG!
Then I realized I already was.
