Sad, but somewhat uplifting. The idea of a peaceful loving start compaired to a violent ugly death is powerful, nice topic. Great write.

|What a stark contrast, Joe..Nicely penned.. Someday, we may evolve to the point where children are not born to grow up and die in wars..I'm having a little faith in a Star Trek future for our race. After all, we haven't been out of the tree tops that long...len|

This poem will have gripped many hearts, The image of the poem was so clear, the babies crying.
Horible world, which will never be rested, sadly.

A poem that exist and breaths in the sounds of your native world... A sad poem but you see hear and read every day.. I'm sorry for your losses in your country...
A constant battle that no one wins....Hugs ~ Scarlett

Two simple yet complex words-
The only reality of this existence that is a fact is
life begets death-
A excellent and decisive description in a
short yet in depth piece of writing-

What a chillingly poignant contrast you present us here, Joe...
I could hear the babies cry and smell the guns bitter...smell...what's that called?
This really plays tug~of~war with both heart and mind.
Excellent penning of a poignant experience~
