Did You Hear It?


did you hear it?
that bomb
the power hungry man
pushed the button
did you hear it?
that maniacal laugh
that bomb
the sound of shattered glass
earths anguishing scream as it hit
did you hear it?
that bomb spewing poison
trapped in buildings in lungs
did you hear it?
tears we cried for our homeland
with your sickness you gave us fear
when you came with your bombs
did you hear it?
our screams, our cries
our cries of grief for loved ones killed
did you hear it?
a funeral…a funeral a thousand times over
did you hear it?

About lenwilliamscarver

A simple woman of simple means, walking a gravel road on my journey, made stronger by paths taken barefoot, pain endured, and revealed in these writings. Mistakes made some taught a lesson some lessons ignored, now learning to forgive myself.
