Light Through The Darkness

Sadden hearts over the world,
As news unfolds of tragedy,
Sickening attacks upon innocence,
Igniting fears, fuelling hatred,
Humanity suffered yet again.
Along with others around the world,
Watching uselessly with the rest,
The downfall of humanity,
People are afraid, terrified,
While the rest of us watches on,
Unable to be shocked nor surprised,
That is what scares me the most.
Has humanity really came to this?
Tragedies happening so often,
No longer able to be shocked,
Acts against humanity being common,
Attacked by cowards,
Targeting the innocence,
The defenseless, the unprotected,
Has it really gone down to this?
More and more I see the terror,
Upon the faces of the people,
More and more I see the blood,
Filling, painting the street’s red,
More and more I feel useless,
Unable to extend my hand,
Reaching, helping those in need,
What can we do together?
As a human race to stop the killings?
To stop the unnecessary acts,
Against each other?
Throughout history, we have prevailed,
Only when we united as one,
Standing together side by side,
Screaming loudly as possible,
Enough is enough,
No more, this ends now,
Through the darkest times in history,
We stood together as a nation,
Shining through the darkness,
Believing in something,
Other than ourselves,
Heart aching, mourning with grief,
Watching as humanity falls deeper,
Unless we are able,
To put our differences aside,
Start becoming one, as a human race.
