Poems for Peace Competition: read Haroon Malik's Highly Commended poem.

War Poem

I was standing here inside my heart
And I was feeling that I have no strength or power
to keep on living from the war.

The men raised from the ashes
When he balanced me in the air
I raised my hand on his head
And saw the pilots in the kill box
And they know how to move into a room.
