Some kids in this world live in fear everyday
They’re scared of what might happen so they’ll just say
“I think I might die today”
They can’t even speak their own mind
They can’t express their own emotions
They meet somebody that’s not very kind
And puts them in a place which causes a lot of commotion
They hold on to life—they truly tried
But by morning they found out another one died
Their thoughts roam, “Will this ever be justified?”
Fear is their life
Laughter is a mystery
Until one day their life will be history...

Dedicated to the kids who have experienced or are currently experiencing war.
