When I Was One

Drops (14).jpg

When I was one, the war began
When I was two, mother was new
When I was three, we were at sea
When I was four we hid under the floor
When I was five we were barely alive
But now I am six and we’re stuck here together
The fences and tents go for ever and ever.

 

 

Still We Cry
