Peace


Take a boy away from home, and don't let him know where he'll go. A stop here, a stop there, but active fighting is his family's fear. A tear falls as they pray--"God, just let me see him one more day." Nine monthes doesn't seem long, but when you can't reach him-- time just won't roll on. Before you know it he'll be home and tears of joy will fill our eyes. As do his-- yet he is happy to be back, and hold his loved ones near. The tears in his eyes are not so dear. His "brother" now a cripple, his other is no more. His body has made it home--- But his mind never more.
