PERSECUTION

February 26, 2008

The putrid smell of
Decaying flesh
Boiling blood
Burning bodies.
Cinders and
Fire.
The sounds of
Death:
Screaming
Crying and
Worst of all
Silence.
The images so...
Unreal.
Lifeless bodies hanging
Because they are considered
(Under one eye)
Worthless Scum.
People running,
Trying to save their loved ones
Children and adults alike
Kneeling in whispered prayer.
Wondering why the world
Just doesn't care.
The feelings,
Emotional and physical,
Your flesh stinging
From little embers
Of the death you witness.
The feelings of,
Sadness
Hate
Peace
War
Loss
And gain
All to the fullest
Sincerity.
All senses fully awakened
And just from one scene.
All this arousal
From something
Done at the very hand
Of man himself
This showing just how
Judgmental
Cruel
Cold and uncaring
People can be.
All this leading to just one word...
PERSECUTION.
