There is still a paradise in her dream.

There is still a paradise in her dream.

She is a little five-years-girl and plays with a broken doll that wears a dirty dress, but the little girl doesn't see that at all.

She had been got traumatized when the house hit by a rocket.

The little girl hums a lullaby and lays the doll in a broken box.

She doesn't care for the falling bombs she hears from the distance.
"Sleep well my little girl," she says to the doll. God bless and protect you. Mom and dad will be here again, tomorrow."

She takes a bit from a loaf of bread. She found it outside in the early morning. Still sitting next to the box, she lays her head beside her doll.

Her little body is tired. She falls asleep, immediately.

In the second floor of her home lies a man and a woman, covered by dust and stones.

The little girl is sleeping.

There is still a paradise in her dream.

Thank you for your detailed analysis of my post, Casper.
I did not expect anyone to interpret my thoughts the way you did.
It's true, my post is written purely emotional, but is that so wrong? More emotion and compassion and less psychoanalysis or rational thinking would do us, humans, very well.
There are worse things to do than searching for joys, peace, and love. Unfortunately, the world doesn't seem ready for peace and humanity. We have just a limited time for living. Why waste it with war and arguing?

Hi, Aragon.

I do not know what to say.
You could not see me? What does that mean?
Your comment confuses me because I can not guess whether you want to criticize me and my childlike dream of hope in the end or to add a point of view.

Nevertheless, your secret is secure with me. I will not tell anyone...
Thanks for having read and commented on my post.

I thought "all those beautiful people rode on those beautiful horses and went"…
It means I couldn't see you Rose
How a lovely story .. sadness and hope… together
Those beautiful people had believed to better World
And believed that the kids will not cry after that World
All of them would love to all beauties and would touch to flowers , trees , even snowdrops . which resist to their head from under the snow .. hopefully .. yeah they thought that, rebelled against evil
And imagined that they can touch the sky and even pass to oceans with their ideas and hopes .. they thought that those huge oceans will be a step for them
And believed that .. they can erase to all horrible feelings and even stopped wars with their those beautiful hopes
How was nice that utopia Rose
How was nice those childish opinions
How was that reality Rose which will never lived by people
They thought but couldn’t live

Now? there is no even a singer who will tell us those stories...

A note : I will give you a secret Rose.. In fact John Lennon had stolen my soul for all those his beautiful songs and ideas …. I don’t want to declare that reality .. because It can be so sad for his family … but he is a real art thief.. He had been stolen my songs , desires , hopes, opinions … When I awared that reality, searched for open a court against him for my copyright…Learned that he was lived before my birth..Anyway .. so I didnt open that court...I have forgiven him… But don’t say anybody please.. It must be a secret between only you and me ..

Dear Rose,

War has always brought pain and sorrow and left millions of lives devasted all over the world. But the bitter fact is wars happen all over the world ....in many cases it is just a representation of one country's power and wealth apparently a display of dirty politics.

Where civilians have to pay the cost in all the countries who involve in wars. :(

Dear SNR. This little girl stands as an example for uncountable fates.
I don't know how many children have to go through endless sorrows.
It is a shame! It seems people never will learn from the history of wars. Wars are senseless and bring only much pain. I don't know why hatred, greed, and violence rule the world.

Thanks for your compassionate words.

Hi, Dear Rose,

It is a touchy, sad and emotional story. I hope that little girl stays safe unharmed.

John Lennon created this song in 1971. Its topic is still actual and alive.

The majority of us dream the dream of a better and more peaceful world, but I fear the reality is further from this image than ever before.

We should listen very carefully to his song.

Indeed, saba.

Thanks for your comment on my post.

I hope that rockets, bombs and other weapons of mass destruction will not be made anymore. The world will be in peace without weapons.

Dear Paula.

There is too much praise in your words, but I appreciate your comment very much, and I am happy about it. Thanks, many times.
I try to translate what I think and feel into words. If people understand me, even though I express my opinion in a foreign language, then I must have done something right.
