Poem and Stories


What birthed these beasts?
Who made them strong?
Why murder another to prove a point?
Why shed innocent blood?
How does it solve your problem?
Where are our leaders?
Why the gruesome killings?
When we are not at war
Our children are our future
Our children are our perfect treasures
Why drag them into your fight
Why waste the blood of a child
Why make them orphans
Why deny them life
The blood of the innocent cries against you
Your doom is here
I bleed for my land
I bleed for our future
