Faces - Poem by Matthew Densley

Shining faces looking down
Overbearing sparkled crown
Watching over all of us
Watching over ALL of us

What do they see when we see war
Can the tell what we fight for
What do they think when large bombs crash
And all the clouds are turned to ash

When all that towered is turned to dust
Through all mans power all mans thrust
And bodies lay on city streets
Quickly fading their heartbeats

What are the faces meant to think?
When all that floats we tend to sink
And all that lives we tend to kill
If they could see the blood we spill

How would we act to one another?
If in all men you saw your brother
And in all women your sister known
If every child was your own

When all the earth is cracked and broken
When the wrath of man is finally spoken
When all that lives has ceased to be
Just what will those faces see?
