Gone to Hell:
So much innocent blood spilled, random acts of pointless violence,
We remember the fallen, mourning their lives in sorrow, in silence,
Naive, I thought humanity’s ties were built to last,
I was wrong, unity and peace now seem so far in the past,
Is this the final nail in the coffin, hopes death knell,
Has the world torn apart, broken, gone to Hell,
I have but one question to ask my friend,
Will this nightmare never end?
Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Nightmare. Instead of writing a poem about my own thoughts, feelings and my darkness within, I’ve done something different and tried to write a poem about current affairs and the state of the world. Also, I have added it to the current Poets for Peace project, link here where poets are asked to share their work about peace and it willbe added to a combined collaborative effort. It’s the first time that I have shared my work apart from on my own blog.
