Let Death Come And Set Me Free- Afghanistan

Rating: 4.8
Confined to a wheelchair and staring at the wall
Going to school was the last thing that I recall
They said the bomb went off as we were walking past
And both my parents died instantly in the blast
I cannot feel the pain for my body is numb
Regrettably to my wounds I did not succumb

My country's been at war for as long as I know
And surviving was about knowing friend from foe
Peace and freedom are words we do not understand
But we have long fought for it in this troubled land

I have seen them drowned and I have seen the bones of those who starved to death. I had known about human-trafficking and all this is happening in this region- so very sad
