Crying In Whisper

In my country,
Seeing smoky sky
Is nothing,
But Killing kids kills
Me everyday, every minute
Every second,
No matter with
Thundering bullets
Or lightening rockets;
It is being our daily habit
No more choices:
To die or but to die
Silently without even a whispered Cry,
Or a small bit of a registered grave;
It is happening now just in my country!

    So frustrating and so hard to really understand from afar. In the US we can leave..so easily, we have roads, e have cars, we have freedom of movement and we don't understand..you can't even really leave..I hope writing helps a bit and you will do more of it. Light & Love
