Arrows against Humanity
By:Nicholas Dykstra
Yumna Karim

Arrows of brutality attack our fragile society,
From the negativity it has caused a tragedy.

Life is precious and desperate so tread lightly,
Many have been struck by arrows of insanity.

Created by man the arrow is designed purposely,
Deflecting these arrows can be catastrophe.

In order to maintain our sanity,
We need to fight to bring out the positivity.

For it's also a mankind's gift
To spread discord and enmity

Arrows of brutality attack us, coming ever so near of ripping our hearts apart.

What is the purpose, one may ask
Except to render them incapable of humility.

Life is precious and desperate, so tread ever so slightly.
Hear the anxious cries of dying humanity
