I dare say that all of humanity has fallen to a new low
Enormous acts of savagery occur in the world
And the world has become volatile
Flooded by acts of terror and violence
Isn’t that the news we are fed every day?
The cries of people suffering and gnashing their teeth
Alas! These traumatic stories shake one to the core
People commit all kinds of jungle justice with absolute disregard for the rule of law
Thousands are butchered every day in different places
Heart-wrenching. Disheartening. Frightening.
Stories that touch
Violent explosions and fierce aggressions erupt abruptly anywhere
Millions of people are forcefully displaced
And all these cruelties are perpetrated by some beasts who parade in human form.
What a life of sadness and gloom
For some countries that sink into deeper depths of despair
Due to the despicable and inhumane violent attacks
Every day innocent men, women and children are brutally killed
Some are maimed, displaced and subjected to the most agonising torture
Sadly, these people endure untold pain
And I’d guess the questions on their minds every day
Was it a crime to be born into this world?
Will this savagery ever end?
Will the world ever be purged of these barbaric actions
Will humanity ever embrace peace instead of war?
