I Wonder Why

Published April 2, 2012 by sidmary

This poem is dedicated to all the children of Palestine, and of each war torn country where they are robbed of their childhood and innocence.


Morning skies.



The grass grows high.

The birds release:

A song in the air.


She prances high.

Her eyes are closed.

Her frock afloat.


A smile as sweet

As the flower’s smell

Dances on her lips

To match her step.


She twirls around;

The little girl.

I see her eyes:

They are full of hurt.


I wonder why?

I wonder why?
