Poem called child born in war-torn countries

An incentive is children are born in war-torn Ukraine

The fantastic pain edged their parents' faces.

This leaves sour tastes in our mouths as we watch on at the terrifying pictures.

A mixture of sadness filled our eyes

I hope wise heads prevail over the leaders of Russia and Ukraine.

We again join hands and lend the hand of friendship to people from  Ukraine.

Who remains so positive through difficult times.

Through enemy lines.

This shows acts of kindness from people who live in the United Kindom and have opened their hearts and homes to Ukraine families who have brought them to safety as they begin their new lives in the United Kingdom. 

I hope with the help Ukraine can rise again from their knees and instead of tears of sadness in their eyes into beautiful smiles of happiness again for Ukraine people again

    @Tori_Scope, they’ve been with us for two months, it’s been a positive experience mostly, but obviously they have worries about home. I know it’s early days yet but I think we’ll remain friends long after the conflict is over.

    Poem called child born in war-torn countries

    An  unconscious and undeveloped child minds born in war-torn country of Ukraine

    The fantastic pain edged their parents' faces.

    This leaves sour tastes in our mouths as we watch on at the terrifying pictures.

    A mixture of sadness filled our eyes

    I hope wise heads prevail over the leaders of Russia and Ukraine.

    We again join hands and lend the hand of friendship to people from  Ukraine.

    Who remains so positive through difficult times.

    Through enemy lines.

    This shows acts of kindness from people who live in the United Kindom and have opened their hearts and homes to Ukraine families who have brought them to safety as they begin their new lives in the United Kingdom. 

    I hope with the help Ukraine can rise again from their knees to their feet and instead of tears of sadness in their eyes into beautiful smiles of happiness once again Ukraine people who are amazing people who have amazing courage and determination to keep rising in difficult times as thousands of different emotions run through their minds their still able to show acts of kindness and love and compassion on this difficult time for the country of Ukrainian and glorious people and beyond words can not express how deeply they are beautiful people who are showing their acts of kindness towards their own country men and women and children and the elderly people too.
