Chaos surrounds us
Violence spreads amongst us


Children’s laughter
Drowned out by the sound of
Ricocheting bullets


Mothers’ lullabies
Replaced with agonizing
Echoing screams


Cities destroyed
Lives taken
A world nowhere near peace


They cry for help
They beg for mercy
But it’s not enough


We must fight back
We must take a stand


We will not be shunned
We will not be silenced


This is our fight
And we will win.
