Khin Thandar Aung


Flying bullets dropped by my side.

Barking sounds like millions of popping corn.

Fear made me lose hope.

I ran away from the death-path.

I forgot to take off my school bag.

My final exam has drawn near.

Only in sunlight can I study.

I felt starvation with little food.

Chilly winds made me miss my blanket.

Murmuring attacked the horrible silent night.

I fell asleep with fear.


I dreamed of a ceasefire.

I learned peacefully in the classroom.

I have dinner with plenty of food.


A boom blast illuminated the dark.

A cold sweat woke me up.
