Yesterday s Child

Yesterday you were an innocent child

Today you are a killing machine holding a T56

No feelings no remorse or passion

What an unhealthy transformation


Yesterday I saw you were going to school

You carried books in your hands

I could see  your innocent  smile

Today I see blood in your hands

They turned you in to a diminutive monster


No longer I see your childish face

Instead I see the atrocious eyes

Filled with anger and hate

You cast a deadly shadow


What happened to the yesterday s child?

Who stole his childhood?  and why?

Fruitful and innocent youth

Turned in to dust that  will never return


Yesterday s child no longer you exist

Your world is shattered

The Promised Land is no more

All you see is the wasteland with walking dead
