When I was 12

When I was 12 I went on holiday with my family.

When I was 12 we went to Bruge in Belgium.

When I was 12 we visited Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery to remember those who were lost.

When I was 12 we visited the Menin Gate to remember those who were missing.

When I was 12 we visited a war trench which scared me to my core.

When I was 12 we visited a field where farmers were still ploughing up shells and sometimes bombs from the war.

When I was 12 I went away and returned home. They didn’t.

I will remember and pray for a peaceful future.
