Ukraine and Russia are still at war
for months and maybe years more
children are no longer out to play
i bow down and pray it won’t stay.
war ruined communities and families
disrupts economic fabric of nations
creates long term harm to people
reduction in human and material capital.
war is never the answer to a dispute
it’s never the solution nor absolute
i hope one day we’d be happy and gay
i bow down in supplication and pray.
Iran sentenced 15k protesters to death
of “enmity against God” and “spreading
corruption on earth”
a punishment for not being obedient
or simply being an oppressive tyrant?
tyranny is at most harsh and cruel
prevents people from reaching full potential
i hope one day we’d live freely
i bow down in plea and pray.
more than the war in Ukraine
and the tyranny in Iran
we all rage our own wars
we all are silent tyrants.
these kind of wars are even more dangerous
it destroy self worth, dreams and ambitions
the tyrants among us are more oppressive
it put a death sentence to all that we hope and
i bow down in supplication and pray
we find inner peace one day.
