Prayer Of A Child (Who Is A Victim Of Landmines) - Poetic Thoughts II

  1. 1. Prayer Of A Child (Who Is A Victim Of Landmines) It was not so long ago, That I went to school With my friends, Played from dawn to dusk With my brothers and sisters, Helped my father To work his fields Or ran errands, for my mother. It seemed like yesterday I made that kite (My pride and joy) I ran through the meadow Trying to fly it. And BANG! It still returns to haunt me. When I woke up The world was blurred to me. Then little by little, My mothers’ face, tear-strained, My fathers’, hopeless, My brothers’ and sisters’, aghast and sad, My friends’, horror-stricken. No explanation was needed I knew, when I couldn’t find my legs. Please God! Take away These equipment Fashioned in the devils’ workshop Called landmines. Don’t put a full-stop To anyone’s life Like mine. Amen.
