Casualty of War
By: Jon M. Nelson
With a terrified look upon his face,
I wonder what he’s doing in this place.
There are bombs exploding and bullets flying,
He’s curled up in a corner scared and crying.
I know that he did not ask to be here,
And I know he’s overwhelmed with fear.
Where are the parents of this child lost,
As he screams out in this holocaust?
I can feel his pain as I see his tears,
But his cries will fall upon deaf ears.
The sounds of war drown him out,
