Fears!

I tried to open my eyes,

And I saw burnt potatoes;

Some of them looked like human children,

Just a few though.

One of them had scars all over the body

But the eyes

Were open,

Staring directly at me…

Then, they were closed—gradually.

I got scared.

So, I let them lie on the ground in the company of bullets, tear gas, and a green tank…

 

I had to close my eyes.

I ran away.
