Another piece of writing for you all today. Like the title says , I’m not sure what to call this. I wrote it just after the Manchester bombing.
Why are nations dropping bombs on rival people?
Supremacist flags flying on a steeple,
Willows whip around an abandoned lake
People saying they love each other, but it’s all fake.
Wars being fought
But the score says nought nought.
I’m writing this after a bomb was dropped
and 22 people’s lives were stopped.
A man trying to bring around paradise
Bombing a concert, paying a price,
A family torn apart by the death of a child,
because someones’s beliefs went wild.
Bombing countries, ruining lives for paradise,
paying the ultimate price.
Why can’t we all get along?
A million voices raised in one song?
Why take the world on a ride
for the selfish matter of pride?
Families broken, people cry,
Governments sign a treaty and still more die.
Our world is falling apart
It seems like no one has a heart
So many have died
Whilst so many more have cried.
Children no longer have a mum or dad,
Forced to remember who they had.
The world can’t seem to live in peace,
falling apart, piece by piece.
This is the only world we have, just the one.
So why are we treating it all wrong?
Hope you liked it. 🙂
