Freedom, Not Terror


Orphaned by their war.

I rebel for my people.

Freedom, not terror.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #137, 6/19/2018 (This poem was inspired by the protagonist in my second novel who struggles with his sadness and anger over the death of his parents caused by the Iraq war. I’m editing the first draft.) –
