For Whom Was The Dead Bell Tolled? - Poem by Han Min Ohn

For whom was the dead bell tolled?
From high above the sky, in a building old
Was it tolled for a hungry child
Who had nothing to eat and finally died?
Was it tolled for a child with disease
Who had died due to lack of medicine to treat?
Was it tolled for an innocent child
Whose life was sacrificed during a meaningless fight?
Or was it tolled for all children in this world
Who had been the victims of humanity’s falses
So please tell me if you know
For whom was the dead bell tolled?
From high above the sky, in a building old.
