Shells all around

Living through war

Is trauma and pain.

Fleeing or fighting

is horrible and inhumane.

Yet still war happens

and fear drives us on.

Why do we hurt the innocent

who don’t know what’s wrong?

Hearts are full of sadness

and pain as we watch from afar

at the vicious game they play.

And yet tomorrow

more shells will fall

and we will watch and judge

the soldiers thrown into the giant’s maw.
