Ashen faces

img_7357

Death and destruction

Ashen faces

Bombed out buildings

Fear and consternation

Tanks and ammunition

Civilians and soldiers

Fighting, resisting

Dying and getting injured

And why?

To conquer a free country

To show one’s power

To extend one’s territory

The world has arisen against this atrocity

Countries have imposed sanctions

Are sending armaments

Condemn the violence

Watch in horror 

As their fellow men suffer and die

The near future is dark

The sky is darkened by billowing smoke

The land is scorched

People are victims of aggression

But the world is united 

Countries are doing what they can

To end this war

To let people live freely in their own country

To punish the aggressor

The distant future is bright

Those who want to start a war

Will know the world will be united against them

Wars won’t start so easily 

We will be one step closer to peace

But in the meantime

Death and destruction

Ashen faces

Bombed out buildings

What we see 

And people suffer
