The Battle: A Poem

Updated on December 6, 2009

 Before you read this poem, I think it is important for you to know that my ten year old daughter wrote this poem.  It is an excellent poem that I am very proud of.  In encouragement for her talents as a poet, I promised her I would publish it to the internet.  Please enjoy.

When the moon comes out

The darkness spreads

Just take one route

There lies some heads

 

The key you’re looking for is from your heart

Do not be mean

God knows your part

Therefore you have won and remember do not be mean

It is cause someone is watching.

 

The fear in their eyes I cannot bear

The guns going off

It was such a terror

But at last they don’t care.

      Not only is your daughter talented, but she has the wisdom that some adults even lack. Great poem, Wes. You must be proud of her.

      Wow it's hard to believe that a ten year old wrote that. I guess she gets her passion and talent from daddy. Great.
