War Zone

War Zone

A Poem by Meshalini
"

Nothing to say, just read and understand it.

"
My mouth screaming for help,
My voice trembling.

My eyes seeing people suffering in pain,
I'm crying for others.

My ears hearing the sound of blasting,
I pretend to be deaf.

My heart telling me to help them,
I don't want to be selfish.

My hands dragging the dead bodies of my family and friends,
I'm alone now.

My legs running away from the war zone,
Crossing my country border without any hope.

It is a sad world my friend. I went to Africa and Asia on water, food and medicine missions with the Red cross. War is cold and heartless. Old people, women and children pay the price for hate. Losing their home, needed food and medico treatment. Your words scary and true for too many. My question is simple. Where are the men of peace? We can organize a World cup for soccer. Whole world gather to place a game. But! we can't organized our leader to seek the end of war. I pray I know one day of peace dear Poet.

• My mouth screaming for help,

In general, avoid gerunds. A mouth can scream for help, but it can't screaming. As, "My mouth screams for help," you have more impact.

Thank you so much....I appreciate that.....
So sad that this is a reality for so many in this day and age, praying for worldwide peace seems to simplistic but what else can a person do? - well done good work
