Sound of cocking and firing of guns
Penetrating the hearts of innocent people
Laughs of little children turned into screams

Fathers lifting their children on their shoulders
Now replaced by a rifle hung on their arms
They are ready to fight war

A mother clasps her child’s hand with fear
It is not the fear of death

It is the fear of losing another loved one
