2004 — 3rd place — 5th grade

Kailee King, Texas

I can only imagine
I see light,
But it's not clear.
The light is dark and scary.
What are they doing
I ask my Dad,
But he just looks down.
I see blood…and men killing and killing.
I know for sure there is no peace.
Will there
Ever be?
That night I hear Dad praying and his words are, "Please come soon…"
For Peace will come
When God
But when will he/
I go to sleep
And I wait
And wait,
And everyone
Cry and yell.
No Peace.
Not yet.
