War Trauma

Hands on my head, shake off the noise
Let the silence feel this void
Stop the flashback, go away fast
Calm myself and take a grasp

Crying children and firing guns
Life and homes explode to none
While enemies were dropping bombs
Drawing death one cannot run

Vivid nightmare I’m so tired of
On and on, never goes off
The war was over long ago
But my trauma wouldn’t go

People of power whom I blame
Sacrificing us for game
Seeking for power, wanting fame
You abhorrent, be ashamed!
