Homeless, cold and desperate

That world and ours we think is separate

Where millions are killed everyday

“Is there anyone out there that cares?” they wonder

Their lives torn apart by war

Bullets are flying in the sky

Yet again another will die

Blood splatters like rain

They are left wondering whether anyone is left who is still human

Tears fall as they cry in agony and hunger

Amidst a war there is no trust

Help stop these atrocities we must ,

Reach out and show that we care ;

No matter our nationality or religion

We are all human

- M. Dhaaniya
