“The Children of War”

by Rellick

I hear it in the cities

Nothing but broken promises

I hear it echo in the mountains

Drowned out now by the pounding thunder

I feel the terror, yet do not see the pain

Cover your ears and close your eyes

Should you feel their plight

Overhead the whine of another bomb

Soon another child is taken

Another family broken

The innocent, the children of war

Pat your backs you mighty beast

For what you’ve taken

The children cry out from their pain
