A Shortened Life - Poem by Sandra Osborne

With smiles,
They hate,
And scream,
And fear.
Trying to last,
One more year.

With no more peace,
Without a doubt,
A shortened life,
With the lease run out.

    The hate word, love the smile word, love the peace, hate the word war
    then again the book 'War and Peace'

    With a warmth allan
