Unsafe World

Land is silent, 

Sky dark blue

Sufferings spew blood 

Over children's graveyard

Tear-stained parents 

Beat their chest

Cursing their helplessness

Cannot stretch hands to

Wring the throats
Of merciless animals

Thousands miles away

In another faraway world
Mother's heartbeat 

As she kisses in the air

To her children
On their way to school

Will they be safe?

She dusts the furniture
Cooks a quick meal
Watches the clock
Plays with her hands

Unable to focus

Her life somersaults

In an uneven pause

Till they return
Chirping and smiling

Back from school
