Violence,
The disease.
Silence,
All it breeds.

Too many mother’s fear,
Their babies buried here.

Both sides
Shatter families,
Anger hides
Secret insecurities.

Please, if only for the Children!
Let peace at last begin.

Lightning strikes
Dozens of times
In the unlit nights
As church-bells chime.

Brothers weep for brothers,
Sons now lost to mothers.

Fear creeps
Up to stifle,
The world leaps
To grab a rifle.

Please! If only for the Children!
End it now! Let peace begin.
