'Searching For An Answer' - Poem by Linda Winchell

I 've been searching for an answer
an answer to your pain.
I am asking God to end this war
and all the death and destruction that it reigns.

But will your country ever forgive us?
For what you've been taught to be the truth.
Of the sounds of American boys and gilrs
Armies marching in your towns in boots.

Will any of this ever go away?
after the bombs stop and dust has settled.
Or will it take us but to another war of sorts?
Now in your homes of caves, sand and nettles.

I pray for peace that may not, in my life time come
where one day your daughters can walk with pride
with only sun glasses reflecting off rays of sun.
No veiled faces, smiling faces and laughter in your streets
girls and boys now marching, in boots of love, harmony and peace.

I can only hope and pray for this
that is all as an American Mother I can do.
And I'm hoping that your nation of Mothers'
are praying for this too.
