Withdrawn

Withdrawn from my childhood
My innocence and youth
I’m standing guard with gun in hand
What else have I to lose?

My life or anothers
It’s how it has become
When a boy my age of 10 years
Shall protect the family
Where’s the law?

I should be running in the street
With friends out kicking balls
But its a different game that
I should keep
Or else shall live no more.

I can not live as white man lives
I have a part to play
And thus it is my life goes on
The same as this, every day.

Artist's Description

In my opinion the world should taake stance and stop Mugabe from using child soldiers. He steals their innocence and their youth, times they should be out running around playing ball with other young friends. Instead he gives them guns, not toy guns either; these are the real thing and the things they then go on to see and do, I don’t like to imagine! How will these youngsters ever learn to cope away from this situation, how could they go back to being children again after such horrors, how do they then integrate back into society?
