This is a very interesting and a well written poem. Could you please tell me a little bit more of the background behind this poem. My son was stationed in Albania for a period of time during this conflict which is actually still in progress so I followed the events with interest. James

To answer jmlee. I wrote the poem after listening to a TV report in which a Kosovan mother explained how she and her other children were allowed to escape but that her eldest son who was twelve had refused to come and had remained with his father. She was looking for their bodies.
