I'm In The Middle East Poem by Dhiren Doley

I'm In The Middle East

Rating: 4.5

Things fell apart
Time had run off
And the wall of humanity broken down
The soldiers have tied their saddles
A war just began
I was not the one the gun shot
But a pain silently settled in me
And I never knew there was a sea of tears
Hidden mine within
Then I found myself standing
In the middle of the Middle East;
The solders senseless
The rulers aimless
Humanity hopeless
Love has lost its language
The song lost its tone best

A solder picked his gun up
I told him, shoot at me,
Let them run
And darkness engulfed us.

I see a lot of pain in your words, may be because you witnessed something that has left an impact...a lasting one..
