    Running

    No stopping as I ran through the jungle
    Boots clapping
    Men yelling
    Bullets Screaming
    The echo of rifle fire rang through the forest like thunder in a mountain valley
    The explosions and the sound are like the war is inside me
    I run as the world goes quiet
    Everything is like a blur as I fall in the hole of sorrow and grief
    All I think about is home and silence
    I just want to go home

    Great poem and very evocative, as Nick already posted. I'm not surprised the teacher was impressed.
