Bloodshed in the Middle East
This has been going on for 40 years or so
I was a young child listening to the news
I grew up in West. This is still going on.
Where is the strong leadership and faith?
We all are humans; with intelligent minds.
I grew up believing in a peaceful world
Believing in caring for one another
Believing in helping each other
Believing in being neighborly
Believing in doing good; not evil.
I wish I could understand your thinking
What it is that carries in your thoughts?
I would not want generations to continue
In witnessing bloodshed into the future.
What is left for these people’s welfare?
If this were me; I’d become so sad and weary
I couldn’t have that smile on my face.
I would not see the happiness or even feel it
I would wonder what kind of world we live in.
I would be restless and agitated by what I see.
In order to stop this; there has to be a turn around.
A justice and dignity must prevail and win.
An extreme need of education and reform
A desire of love and kindness for everyone
And a lasting hope of our life in the world.
