Not Humans - Poem by Fareez Nasir

I pray for the world to have peace again
Take away its misery and pain
Multiply our people to replace the ones dead and gone
I want to see babies born

Are we humans or are we not
Are we killing machines, I forgot
Do we have any feelings at all
To watch in delight as others fall?

I keep seeing red blood pour
Got money for wars but can't feed the poor
Why must we cut what we can untie?
When two presidents fight, their nation die?

We never had a chance to speak and be heard
They're hearing nothing, not a word
But for them, we're sent on a war path
It's our people in the blood bath

I don't understand these people who're selfish
Always doing things as they wish
So if there's a thing I have to learn
I want to know if we are humans
