POEM: THE TIME IS WEAK

3006-syrian-refugees-flooded-encampment-lebanon-ff

The World is in chaos
Children dying
Mothers crying
Fathers desperate
When will this war end?
The war of words
The war of hate
The war of religion
Destroying all lives from left to right
The world is crumbling all around us
Can’t we just be a beacon light?
The news is sad
The images horrific
How could those images speak volumes?
A sound to my heart
My soul weeps
Lord help us
For the time is weak
