Dreams

Let me live in my dreams
Where there are
No whys and no hows
A world full of reality
Full of love and happiness
Let me live in my dreams

Battling Child

Fifteen-year-old Child
Died while fighting for liberty

Blood splashes and brain smashes

Poor Women

You always see them

They know no storm

Tending children or mending clothes
Mopping floors or cooking food
They know no break
They know no rest

To my Family

Round and round around my heart
Dance and hop and jump your ties
For love is in all your hearts
The way it is in my life
And what is my life without you
Just a cold stone on a cold tomb.

Sand dust exposed to wind’s blows
Tomorrow our joyful smiles
So bright now will turn sad

We are small toy beings
In the hands of ogres
Who play with our lives
Then eat them up

With a score of 70% (7 out of 10), I did fairly well; but I still have to learn a lot about poetry and poets.
