Seeing Those Eyes.. (War / Children)

Those eyes filled with anger, sorrow, fear and confusion 
Can you see the heavy weight 
Inside those eyes there is no illusion 
Can you see the horrors of what they are afraid 

Seeing those eyes watching at me, staring at me, getting to me.. 

Those eyes have seen to many brutalities 
No child should ever see 
Scarred with those memories 
From which they can’t break free 

Seeing those eyes looking at me, inside of me, breaking me.. 

In those eyes a whole story is told 
Do you see it in those eyes 
Death of the young and the old 
War made them see to many goodbye's 

Seeing those eyes that seen enough, cried to often, feared to much.. 

It where those eyes, those sad eyes 
The saddest eyes I ever saw 
That made me start to realize 
The price that children pay for war..
