Deadline - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Looking back into beyond, before the war began, hoping and praying that Saddam would have some particle of human decency and not let it happen or begin.
Anxiously awaiting words of reason and peace as President Bush's deadline crept increasingly closer with every passing second.
Trying to not let hope be defeated with negative thoughts or words, silent or spoken out loud.
Looking towards the eastern horizon, sitting and waiting for messages of unity and peace.
None came as the deadline became the beginning of war with Iraq.
