"yes we are our fathers sons and daughters but we are not their choices" -Poetry Slam Knock Knock
"Knock Knock, who's their?, WE ARE!"

Bullets flying
Around me
Yelling, hatred
My mind races
With the thoughts of
My family
Back home.
My beautiful
Young wife.
My supportive
Mother and father.
My two brothers.
Sadness rips threw me
As I see a dying man
On the street.
My eyes trickle tears down my cheeks.
My dead grandfather.
Regrets of the things I never said.
Oh how I miss them.
When will this madness end?
My heart aches to hold them in my eyes once more.
There faces burned in my memory
I will come home once more to my country, my land.
I will once more know that I am not in danger
Any more.
