Innocent Eyes – A Child of War
My gentle eyes
What terror they see.
Despair and misery
No compassion, no liberty.
Brokenness and savagery
Befall my beloved country
I long for happiness and victory.
One great leader’s generosity
Gives me courage to relieve my melancholy.
I remember the fearlessness and honesty of my land
When will I see peace?
What can I understand of this savagery?
Tumbling buildings, shrapnel bombs
They shake my soul and pain my dreams
When will I see victory?
Life in war is a never-ending circle
Once it starts it may never stop.
Gunshots wake me up at night.
BOOM! BOOM! POW!
Screams outside my window
Blood smears everywhere.
When will there be freedom peace, compassion and liberty
