Compassion for All

Burning roses,
fragrant pain,
the same violence again and again.
Hollow raindrops
spill their tears,
smoking eyes where hatred sears.

Irrationality,
lightening fast,
testimonial demons laugh in contrast.
Wrestling lies
without remorse,
forgotten innocents to the eternal torch.

Collateral damage,
free falling,
children discarded curbside till morning.
Camaras melt,
outrage rises,
film burns brighter than lives in crisis.
