A Child's Reflection Comments

Rating: 4.3

Made homeless from home
Bombed city where though many
Extend an armless arm, find it harder
To hold peace than explosives

War brings nothing but destruction and still mankind resorts to warfare to solve problems...The conundrum beautifully expressed.

This is the cry of every heart. So touches the heart and mind with sheer pain to imagine the living of a war torn city.

We look to the stars to dream, when we should look down in the world that screams. This is a work that should be read by school children to see the world their parents hide.

As I sit reading this, it is Christmas day, the world outside the four walls is a tundra in which the sound of the wind is like a choir of wraiths screaming from the basement of purgatory. And yet this work touches on the fundamental realities of which I am sheltered by, that a roof is a luxury, for those who have spent life living in craters in which all they have is their humanity. you turn tragedy into an understanding.

Excellent reflection of the devastating aftermath of nuclear blast...the savagery that transforms our very dear earth into a waste land.
