For the last eight years of my life
I was being cut with unsharpened knife
Now let the time come to end the strife.

    I say 'Amen' to that! Your country has suffered so much it deserves a long and lasting peace. Good poem. I think the repetition of the two last lines works well. (Report) Reply

    Yes, Lidia......''Let the wind blow and whistle in my ears'' ~ U make a very beautiful poem from the words inside your heart. Let the spoils of war not be glorified. Telling a story like this teaches. (Report) Reply

    Lidia, it's a shame that revenge so often takes precendence over forgiveness. A wonderful poem of hope and peace... nicely done.
