Why am I so hungry ? Adriana   Lewis
I've waited all day for my cup of gruel My stomach hurts
I sit still; that way I don’t get so dizzy.
There are so many of us. I subsist as best I can.
A cloud of dust covers my body, the flies buzz around my eyes.
My mom and dad died in the fighting.
They tell me I'm lucky to be alive.  am I ? in the fighting.
I’ve seen so many guns, so many people being killed .
It is good that I am too weak to have nightmares.
Sometimes I watch the bugs crawling around. They seem to have such purpose.
I work on continuing to breathe….
I don't remember the last time I laughed.
It must have been when my mom was holding me, before the fighting began. That seems so long ago….
I hold on tight to something. Maybe it's called hope .
