Who stole my sorrow

Who saw my tears
That I'd never shed before
Who stole my sorrow
Hidden in the bottom of my heart
When I saw the twins crumble

Now I am standing on the wall
I missed Jennifer's first walk
The M16 feels heavier today

Sand finds its way to my eyes
I see Ahmad is coming
I like his piercing dark eyes
How he plays soccer with other boys
I wish I could teach him to play football
He is not smiling today

Why is his shirt bulging?

Wait
Stop
Stop
