The War-torn Child

 

I will tell God everything

The sharp metal pieces

Taken out of my stomach

Will all come with me..

I will tell God everything

The men with the guns

And the aeroplanes of fire

Will all get in trouble

I will tell God everything

And ask if the lightening in the sky

Was Him taking photos

If not, I’ll give him my drawings

I will tell God everything

That mama’s face was gone

But I found Baba’s feet

And put them together like shoes
