This poem is about a girl’s opinion on war, and the fact the she is against it. She asks the reader why there can not be peace and she tells about her cousin who is a soldier, and how war makes her feel trapped and scared.

This caught my attention because I am against war, and the name tells that it is about war, so I wanted to hear another opinion on it. But, as I hoped to see it from another point of view, this poem taught me more about my belief, and now I have more reason to be against it. In the poem, she said “I want to talk about the war of Afghanistan, how when he said it out loud, it was sharper than the blade of a knife.” This line really touched me because it shows how it emotionally and physically scarred her cousin. I think that she makes a really good point in the poem, and I wish everyone thought like that.
