Yesterday s Child

Yesterday you were an innocent child
Today you are a killing machine holding a T56
No feelings no remorse or passion
What an unhealthy transformation

Yesterday I saw you were going to school
You carried books in your hands  
 I could see  your innocent  smile
Today I see blood in your hands
They turned you in to a diminutive monster

No longer I see your childish face
Instead I see the atrocious eyes 
Filled with anger and hate
You cast a deadly shadow

What happened to the yesterday s child?
Who stole his childhood?  and why?
Fruitful and innocent youth
Turned in to dust that  will never return

Yesterday s child no longer you exist
Your world is shattered 
The Promised Land is no more
All you see is the wasteland with walking dead  

Dr Ruwan M Jayatunge 


  1. Shocking and naked truth. Persons those who driven these children in to an unsuccessful war should be eradicated.

  2. These child soldiers still carry emotional scars
