Another Family Cries – Poem #05

24/07/2019 0 By GlennThomas

All I hear is somebody died
So naturally, as if it’s a part of life
Well, last night, she lost her fight
Cancer wins as another family cries
 
As you live by, die by the knife
Inner-city prosperity with a violent side
Streets stained with teenage lives
Blood pours as another family cries
                        
Firefights light up the skyline
And an orphan’s prayers are denied
As parents search but never find
Echoes of war and another family cries
 
Lasting memories of violence
The sound of silence muffled by sirens
The defiant, beat by giants to comply
Tyranny as another family cries
 
Executions fed by religious lies
Scared to sever the insidious spine
That leads us to political divides
Butchered innocence, another family cries
 
All you hear is somebody died
So naturally, as if it’s a part of life
Last night, she lost that fight
Cancer wins as another family cries
