A part of us

Their laughs never to be heard again.
Their smiles never to be seen again.
They will never be hugged again.
We should be able to see,
That we all lost something.
They were a part of
What we should be.

We forgot.
We forgot who we are.
We failed to protect them.
We got blind to the wonder in the eyes of a child.
We created walls that separated us from their wholeness.
We got indifferent to the generosity in their heart.
We lost our innocence,
Letting them die.
Thus we became monsters.

Behind explanations,
Find reasons,
Pretences.
Distance.

Innocents are emotions
that cannot explain
Why some of them
are left to die,
Why people around

    I also wanted to say “fuck you” to this world that I cannot understand. That does not make any sense.
    A world in which children are dying because of war.

        I tried to convey something.
        You know, when you look at the news and instantly regret it ?

        Crazy world we’re living in, some parts of it I will never understand.
        Never.
