  Why?
   

The pain doesn’t stop

With time

The images, once on the screen,

Are now imbedded in our mind

And will not cease

And can not pass

Will not end

 

We didn’t  hear them screaming,

Yet their fear and suffering

Echoes in our minds.

 

Sadness, profound,

An ache for the death

Of people unknown to me,

A part of me

Gone

Forever

 

What madness is this?

Why are they dead?

Someone?

Anyone?

Please tell me why.

 

Explain to me,

If you can,

Why I cry for people never known

 

I see our flag

It’s red again is blood

Spilled by someone

Who knew why

They died.

 

Please when you find them,

The ones who said they had to die

Before your vengeance,

Demand they answer why
