Why Growing Fears are Bringing Tears
Now streaming down the pale cheeks,
Now drying the lashes –
Seeming shocked spears;
Laughter and smiles
Suddenly stopping for miles
Just sounds of sirens and screams-
Shattered are the dreams;
What life is to be?
To be or not to be?
Murder most foul in Kingdoms
Or in my very own country-
Flee Flee Flee Homo Fugee-
OH Dear I am a Born Refugee
Where do I take refuge
with blasts occurring so huge
Bloody bodies scattering like sedge
Far and wide from edge to edge
And I with growing fears
Of what will be the end of Years?
War terror killing is All One hears;
Who are they? The Taliban?
What people what religion what clan?
Growing Fears for Our Children
Families and Brethren
We want Peace Love Life not Tears
Peace like the Greeks, Peace of Holy Life
No road blocks curfews blackouts and bans-
Oh Lord Illumine brightly what is deep and
Forgive us and save us from this
Hideous ruin rummage Abyss
Bring calm to my growing fears
All is not Lost we can still stop
The warfare- with talk justice and prayer.
