Shattered remnants
of people
fall from the sky
and I leave Mum in tears to
watch the horror and lies.
That was the day I realised
true empathy
and the man whose hand I held
didn’t really love me.
I cried for those broken families and
the children on the streets,
two opposing countries
feeding their followers sweets.
The hypocrisy and delusion
has broken up our world,
I’ll never return to innocence
those feelings forever unfurled.
