Broken Spirit

As the days of fear, anger and loss come to a close,

As the streets fill with people soaked in sadness,

The buildings all destroyed like they were out of a horror film,

This was a horror film,

They said it was the only way,

They said we would win,

They said it was the answer,

It wasn’t,

The fear was still here stronger than ever,

Anger grew as fast as sadness,

Loss was something no one wanted talk about but something everyone was thinking,

I’m alone now,

My love is gone all because of this thing we call war,

Forgiveness is something I’ve had to learn,

For now, I’m alone.
