Then, it happened again, thoughts carried out by evil men. Women praising this war they are raising. Veiled in their ignorance of opportunities in freedoms […]

It’s begun

Echoes of gunfire, cries of carnage, night holds no rest.It’s begun. Calloused hearts repeating angry retorts, both words and lead firing. It’s begun.

Flaming regrets

Flaming regrets in small glasses of wax.Memories and fears to stone and street affixed. All that remains of happier times for some seeking reasons why. Boots, bullets and screams, as tires screech and blasts end dreams. Remaining, remorseful and longing for yesterday, lights dim today. Bend, bruised and bloodied, a nation, a world is troubled. […]
