I was walking in silence,
I was walking among dead,
Repeating to myself ‘You are not afraid’
I was lining for the leftovers,
I was collapsing and so was my breadline,
Thinking by myself, I am exploding like a land mine.
All I see is sand everywhere,
I am dipped in dust to my neck,
Yelling to myself any now or then I would wreck.
I see no sun of relief,
The moon chokes my brain with terror,
I just want to ask god where’s my mom and to please get her.
Life has become worse than awful,
My ears are deaf due to the shellings,
I ponder on but cannot count my dwellings.
Numerous lie awake all night ,
I see them let go or I see them fight,
I scorn it but I cannot overcome this fright.
Baited like a fish in fresh water,
I am left here all alone, no family, no friend,
The world has gone beyond, I see no way to amend.
