Our War

December 8, 2008
By Lesli Schilperoort, Sunnyside, WA

Smokey skies,
piercing noise.
People cry,
and people die.
Men and women
from different parts,
both seek freedom
for all their sinful hearts.
Children are stuck
and can't find food,
while things blow up
making nightmares come true.
People fight for their last breath
and what is it all worth
when thousands are dead.
So why Mr. Bush
Did you sanction this war,
It's you that made families
think heaven is to far.
