Family During A War - Poem by Melissa Furey

A child when world war 2 began
Back then there wasn't one in Afghanistan
Being told to say goodbye
All anyone could do is cry
Having to move out of a home
Living with people who use to live alone

The people was strangers at first
But they were always there when things got worse
When the war was over you go back to the home town
You leave your new family happy but with a frown
Happy you could be back with your mum or dad
But having to leave the people who were now family you felt sad

Now 84 you go back to the country side
to see your old friends and remember those who didn't survive
And remembering those in the current war
After that ones over let's hope its the last one of all
