No Where to Run

I cry and cry
but no one hears
no one even takes
notice of our tears

A silence falls
all day long
our bodies are weak
while they feel strong

Born into disaster
families torn and divided by war
how long more
just how far

Little children lay awake
afraid to close their eyes
not knowing of what tomorrow brings
soldiers in masks
covering their disguise

worn out
afraid for the children
yet to be born

Grown men and women digging
loved ones from the ground
while others place more
beneath the missile rubble
others yet to be found

No where to run
no where to hide
tears and fears
are their reality
for the rest of their lives

How can I evoke your mind
How can I make you see
What was always there for you
Was also there for me

Something in the way you stir
Strikes something inside me
Like a bolt of lightening
Like a storm way out at sea

Crashing of the waves
Pulling and pushing fast
With an inhale of deep breaths
A legacy that lasts

Surrounded by such wonder
Impressions of what could be
A tale yet to be told
A mystery to unfold
