when we lost everything (dont even remember writin this)


we sat around the table giving thanks to God
for our family and friends and even crack the dog
i look around me and smile cos am blessed
my family and i live lavishly dressed

we sat and watched our infants heads
we all on the floor under the beds
bombs exploding and gunfire rattling
and nobody said a word

one by one they fell away
as we ran in the bushes to escape the bullet spray
seven ran into the forests with screams in the blazing sun
now one and a half, my daughters leg gone

she passed away right there in my arms
under the big old tree where i lay my back
with tears in her eyes she turned away from me
that was when i woke up from this dream
