1941

Ten hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor,

The Japanese set foot in my country.

It was the 8th of December.

65 years after,

The brother of my grandfather

Died at the age of 87

Without forgiveness in his heart.

His tombstone reminds me of his abhorrence

To the Japanese occupants

Who violated my people.

He brought to his grave

The only evidence I have of the invasion.

Now all I know of it

Is that it existed on textbooks

And veterans from then have turned

Into trees
