poetry

Insight

Blood flowing

Down empty streets

Straight out of a horror movie

 

Children crying

Parents lost forever

Soldiers fleeing the scene

 

Body counts rising

Hope forever lost

Dreaming of better days is a waste

 

Rivers turning red

Washing wounds to stay alive

Hoping this is all just a dream

 

Lost in media

Not noticing the reality

That this is happening every day

 

Open your eyes

To the disaster

This is reality

Headed for us all
