A World beyond Repair

A previously published poem here with some minor edits.

Death, destruction, despair.

A world beyond repair.

Terror, tyranny and tears.

Victims of all years.

Nations wiped – genocide,

People look on worldwide.

Governments, police: corrupt,

To protect or destruct?

Refugees turned away,

Despite room for them to stay.

Attacks worldwide without reprieve,

Only white lives are grieved.

More flowing blood than water,

No end to pointless slaughter.

Division, racism, hate,

Accepted without debate.

Borders, gates and walls,

No humanity at all.

Only Muslims to blame,

Their lives have no claim.

Wars, wars and yet more wars,

Children killed by the scores.

No end to this in sight,

A future not so bright.

Death, destruction, despair.

A world beyond repair.

    Depressing, but not entirely hopeless. Repair is on the way…just not at the hands of us normal humans. Those familiar with Islamic eschatology will know the signs to still come (far worse than what we see today), but that there’s salvation and peace on earth beyond those darkest of days…albeit short lived.
