Children of War | Poem

 
           

 
 
children of war
 

anonymous fractured children
mourning their losses
with haunting shrunken eyes
ruthless men took away their homes
their mothers and their hopes
quarantined to a life of war and strife
fatherless without a place to dream
the realization has dawned
lives taken by mankind
incomprehensible
