I Turn My Face The Other Way

Upon seeing horrible images of dead and innocent people Under the debris of their broken houses, I immediately turn my face the other way simply Because I can not watch these perished souls, I am a human being and that stirs My feelings and my emotions in a disgusting way, Mass murders and genocides are going on daily Under the world's eyes clearly and openly, but No one dares to say anything about them, We're either blind, deaf, or dumb, We have lost the meaning of true humanity Simply because we're silent and our silence Is absolute in our eyes and in everyone's eyes, so What are we waiting for? !
