Artist's Description

I held the pen in my hand,
as if to threaten,
but I dropped it as the ax flew towards my hand.
The guerillas came in,
guns in hand.
They ordered everyone out,
except for me and my friend.
People sang as they passed us,
joyfully and maliciously.
My friend is stabbed in the neck.
My nose is broken.
We lay on the floor,
my friend sobbing as he slowly bleeds to death.
I feel shocked… No, don’t die. Please, I’m here. I’ll save you.
It is too late.
I look around helplessly.
A family sneaks out from their hiding spot
and leaves.
I crawl after them desperately,
but the soldiers come back for me…
and I wake up.
