One’s rarely sane

Around these

Parts

Even the

Trees

Are on their knees

Unable to bear it

 

No longer

Want to witness

These atrocities

Can’t listen anymore

To the sounds of pain

The last cry

Of a loved one’s

Name

 

Please forgive me 

I have to go

Forgive

Helpless

The trees wept

In peaceful silence

They weep still
