Just Another Life? How many more......

her little eyes strained to look up
scanning the night sky in fear
the deafening roar grows in decibels
nearer and nearer it came

she clutched her teddy closer to her
enjoying the familiar touch
in an unfamiliar world of madness
the fear mounting within

wary of strange roars from the sky
oblivious to anything else
her mother's protective arm pulled her
closer they huddled in safety

their only refuge, their home, their land
hush my baby,it will be over soon
the calming mother's voice consoled her
even as she snuggled closer.

flashes of light lit up the night sky
as the ground trembled
and death came from the skies above
seeking to feed itself

suddenly silence reigned out of nowhere
she looks up at her mother
whose smile answered her innocent gaze
its alright my baby

realised they not death stalked them even then
a single flash from a distant land
a massive bolt of steel crashing into their home
concrete and metal burying them

her little bones were broken like a doll's
her life snuffed out like a candle
her blood flowed freely onto the parched land
her life just a figure in the news

Sometimes we just have no control to our destiny, especially when it comes to life and death. Thus, lives like there's no tomorrow.

Hope you cheer up soon.
