    Wonder what it's like to be scared every day,
    Knowing war and destruction are on the way?

    Never camp out in the yard after dark.

    I'll be happy once I've done this certain thing.
    We all say this often not realizing what it brings.

    this poem touched me but not in the way most people would think.
