You put up your Armour and brace your body.

Weapons on the table, your guns are ready.

So small a soldier, your innocence bled.

You were born in this war zone where the Commanders forget.

There’s hate in the sunlight, and blood on these shores, and say what you may,
Children
Weren’t
Meant
To
Fight
Wars.
