This is a poem to the book Home and Away that we read in literacy. written by John Marsten.
When the war started
No more happy smiles flilled my town
just people striving to live,
Gun shots,people yelling and crying
is all I ever hear now and maybe all that I ever will.
No more playing outside in the sunshine
just staying inside in the dark hoping that this will stop,
Tears gently roll down my face and more are coming,
and all these things started happening
when the war started.
