The 7 Months of Hernan Ray – Part 7

a poem by Abhimanyu Rawat

Hernan almost broke down,
He sat and wept.
Had it been so long.
He saw in his dream the war,
The pain the suffering.
It choked his mortal heart.
He wrote back to Felicia.
Dear Felicia,
I am overcome with guilt.
I feel ashamed to destroy what,
God created.
I do not deserve this life.
I will give this up,
A deserter.
Will you still love me?
Will you still support me?
I fail to write anymore.
Wait for me,
For at this very moment I,
Leave for you.
