The Earth Weeps
The blood seeps the pavement, a deep red
why must the blood of the innocent be shed?
the lifeless bodies, the unseeing eyes
the earth weeps, corrupted by lies.
the war rages on destroying all, in clarity,
to witness this carnage is to risk losing sanity.
homes burned, families shed their rivers of tears
the scars upon their souls will last for months. years.
the pain, the loss, seeps like a poison into one's soul
soon all in the chaos, spins out of control.
Where is the light, the salvation?
Why must it all continue, this desperation?
When will man wipe the blood off his hands
and cease to love the savage cruelty demands?
