April 6: Peace

My mom told me not to worry about the heavy sound that rocked the city, she said it's no more than celebration and dad will explain it to you when he gets home

I waited too long for dad to come home but after I had my dinner I couldn't wait and went to sleep having in mind it's peace

I wake up early in the morning and I rushed to dad's room, it was no different than last night I saw mom talking on the phone with daddy

I got worry a bit and asked mom where is dad? she said he left for work, don't go out today till I say so it's safe and peace

I hang on into my room for awhile and went out from the window, I saw police rooming out side and get back home quickly

I thought they were on duty to protect people from the bullets of the celebrations, but they were just like me wondering what could have caused this

For the second night running, dad didn't come home. My curiosity grow up and I decided not to eat break-fast, mom couldn't handle my attitude

She fell her frustrations on me and beat me to dead, the last word that came out of her was " do you think this will solve the city rocking and it's unsafe everywhere? 

That was the last time I have seen pure peace, since then it was moving from here to there, learning new language, new culture 

Finally I can say it's peace here but not back home, oh peace why do you deny me for so long? What is the reason that my corrupted leaders don't see peace like I do? Peace has eluded my home-land oh peace
