Sheikh Mohan's House.

By Michael

 This will be the last time you see me as I am now.

I will see the world and go to war.
I will learn to hate

I will see death.

I will scream at the top of my lungs and I will change.

In a split second, the person you once knew will be gone, 
one way or another, through fire and blood.
 In a place where the happy thoughts are only of a painless end.
From roadside bombs to  small arms fire
Everything burns.
 I will learn to cope, and to accept things.
Eventhough you will always imagine me as I once was
I will not be.
I will not.

    Welcome to the valley, this was tragically inspiring. There is a difference between a boy entering war naively and a man understanding what he's actually sacrificing. I look forward to reading more of you. Roam around and read others, it will lead them back to your work - XXOO Scholar
