Heartfelt apology

Heartfelt apology

A Poem by Dreamer Sima

That little girl is crying
Enormously clinging onto her
Mother's lifeless body
Her father's whereabouts are missing
Her brother is in army

Scorching heat of Sun is
Peeping through her crumbled roof
Her broken wall is less broken
Than her tattered soul

The heavy gun powder smell is
Strangulating her breath
The missing choruses of her friends
Reminding her of the opulent deaths

Her childhood has disappeared
Into the heavy marching of boots
Her innocence doesn't matter to them
As they are power-hungry aloofs

Oh girl! My poor little girl
This big bad world
Doesn't know the value of serenity
Win or defeat, love or hate
Their score board is only the reflection of a balance sheet

Don't forgive us
Though we owe you a sincere apology
Cause destroying innocence
Even that merciful Lord can't afford a mercy

Love the rawness of your poetry.
The western world build the weapons, the warlords around the world get to try them out.
It's always the eyes of the children that stand out. Frozen in time lost forever.

Heartfelt tugging emotional write. Very well penned! The world spins with the earth creating chaos and danger. People should just slow down a bit. Even children grow up too fast. Wonderfully explained and expressed poetry. Tyfs

There's never been a time when a child hasn't suffered death or persecution during war, ethic cleansing and the like. Man's inhumanity to man is in fact. to the weakest of all society, wherever, everywhere.. to the oldest and youngest. And whilst folk weep over pictures and news articles, the carnage is repeated time and time and time again. Such evil, the greatest sin. Your words are immensely sad

We are supposed to protect our children but sadly that doesn't happen for numerous reasons. We live in an unfair world where opportunities aren't equal. Too many children suffer as a result of warfare, bad parenting, lack of education, poor health care and a myriad of other reasons. A powerful piece which acts as a reminder that luck plays an enormous part and it shouldn't do.

Powerful and potent piece, all the more so for making us pause and reflect at all the damage done to others, for what is called progress but ends up being just another turn of the vicious cycle of life.
And what is that child to make of us and our incompetency that is there for all to see, as they must wonder "who put these idiots in charge?"
Will we ever get it right? Maybe not, but it doesn't mean we should give up on trying to make the world a fairer place. Let's just hope there's enough of us left to see it.

No civilized nation should endorse war... It is not only inhumane but derogatory.

Sorry is a lifeless eulogy when innocent lives are taken because those in power only want more...only want to show off what they can do to annihilate...
is it worth the awful regret felt later...
guilt doesn't dissipate...i have reasons for knowing this.
