This is my first entry for  Colleen’s Weekly#Pietry Challenge#31-Peace &Tear. 

Not for the sensitive, but no apologies for it is happening. 

Rules and Pingback here

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

His brother in arms

Tiny boy gives up the ghost

No tears he’s at peace.

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Is there any hope

For the poor warchild to cope

Shed a tear for peace.

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why, hands held to sky

Tears shed from inocent eyes

Warchild prays for peace.
