Children of War

Mansoureh Nasserchian

 We were children of war

Cease-fire was a word for awhile

Between tyranny and light

 

Ball fires flew like angry dragons

Dead bodies, blood, broken bones

Palms without head part of our history

 

We were children of war

UN ambassadors hidden in the bar

Saddam, Khomeini, Reagan, puppet players

 

Torn paper in the schoolyard

Broken dolls in the emergency ward

And a rugged flag in the name of God

 

We were children of innocent war

Still with open wound we bore

Grown up to be peacekeepers on the earth
