TITLE (EDIT)
Why Them?
DESCRIPTION
I wrote this poem after 3 persons of my school were kidnapped. I was very sad and I wanted to express my feelings in a piece of paper. This poem is about how I feel about this, and I really don't understand why it happened to them. They are such nice persons I really don't understand. I also expresses how I feel about living in Colombia which is now a very insecure place.

Why Them?
Alejandra Herrera

WHY THEM?


It was a beautiful morning
When they disappeared
We still no nothing
But still, why them?
They are innocent people, like me
What did they do to deserve it?
I really don’t understand

I cannot sleep at nights
I just lay in my bed
 With my heart is full of fears
Just thinking how nice could life be,
Everyone laughing, playing and having fun
Free like a bird
And not trapped in this small world
That doesn’t allows us to breathe
Or even help in any way
No matter how badly I want to
There is nothing for me to do

I only have my hopes left
Waiting for their return
Which I hope will come soon
Because I cannot take this any longer
There are no more ways to pray
I am really devastated now
And my heart is tarring apart
