Truth by Claudia Leger

In by New Author on September 24, 2012 at 12:17 pm

There is no escape; only endurance

Panicked but continuing with daily routine

Seeking peace but loading ammo

The planes, the bombs, the death

Will life continue for the crying babe

Struggle to feed, to work, to learn, to teach

The madness swirls, the world watches

An old woman peeks from her curtain

Tattered and crippled she limps to the curb

Alms workers dive into the rubbish

The old woman is drawn down with them

Alarms, sirens, screams, cursing and prayers

Mingled together, mistaken for normal

Pride and anger stretch mentality to unknown limits

Questions unvoiced, answers never expected.
