This is again a war time
and the guns go crazy again
Cannons flying over
while the children scamper and hide.
But I know that this’ not for good
‘Cause I believe that this is going to end soon…
When the war is gone and over,
we’ll live in contemplation
For God did not make our lives
all days of celebration
But then we must keep living
We must go on
We must not give up, we mustn’t stop
to believe that there’s still happiness
in this world of mixed feelings…
When men have hatred in their hearts,
we still have chance in God’s Paradise….
Dear friends in WordPress,
Greetings of peace!
As we are all comrades in this field of writing, I kindly ask you to help me in my humble project – a memoir blog on my experiences in war-torn Basilan. This is especially important for me because I will be writing about my own hometown. Please help me on how to embark in this. I am definitely doing a non-fiction narrative here.
Please, my fellow writers, help me find my path to writing that moves people to their emotions and allows them to react on particular issues better.
Hoping for your kind response to this matter.
JENNY MAE S. TALAVER
