Lost in a bloody storm

Updated on May 22, 2011

“The Khmer Rouge is coming”

Everyone start running

Some girls hid in a hollow tree

So they wouldn’t be seen

Some young girls who were found

Was raped by few men

Cut their throat

With a blade

Which use to held someone hostage

People start running

As bullet flew across them

Over their head

Side of their body

Even foot chase they chase in the forest

Some fell into a ditch

Where dead body laid

Some step on bombs and died an awful way

There was this woman

Carrying her baby around her arm

Hoping nothing would harm

She ran as fast as a Cheetah

Hustling trying to find a place to hide herself

Her feet was blistered and torn

Her skins peels off

From wooden thorn

Her leg has scratches

As the open wound bleed

Trying to find a place to hide as she speeds

Inside an Angkor Wat is where she hides

With her baby locked in her arm tight

Praying to Buddha and her ancestor for help

From all the violence near and far

Protect this baby she held in her arm

From all of harm

Many days later after the war

She came to the United State to make new home

Uncomfortable she was

Still felt it wasn’t home

Looking for her husband who she lost during bloody storms

Weeks after weeks she searched

And finally found her husband

So they reunite

      Thanks Jadedlove and epi, yes I remember watching the killing field. One of the saddest film I watched. The worst is having my grandparent and parent tell me about their life at war. I learn to appreciate them because they did everything they could to come down to the U.S so that I'm born to live a better life....:)

      So much pain and with a beautiful end I find tears left to speak clearly my heart.

      Loved the theme of this one. Touching topic and description. There need to be some grammatical changes made to make this sound better. If you need that to be done, send me an email. Keep writing.
