I just found this on my computer, i know its not strictly an anti-war poem...well its not full stop, but it fits in with the rhyme style of the last
one i posted. I wrote it just after the tsunami event as it affected a lot of my friends at university, and as a result myself.
let me know if u want me to move it or if u would like to urself then please feel free.
Some Body’s Daughter
Tears in the rain fall but nobody sees,
Hidden, she suffers as happiness flees,
Alone, once a child, now her child hood lost,
She stands isolated, crying, observing the cost,
Surrounded by lifeless corpses, numb,
She clutches her cross.
Unable to reason, to worry, to fear
Catatonic in stature, unable to hear,
Without motor reflex she falls to the ground,
No resistance, on impact no whimper or sound,
As her face lays on gravel, blankly staring at void,
She’s alone, isolated, only bodies around.
So much pain, so many victims,
Stranded we watch, nothing we can do,
Their lives crash away with angry seas,
No ripples follow, simply silence.
