Streaming Tears

The river runs deep

Deepened with crimsion

Each death premautre and unjustified

Lives claimed

          stolen

          devalued

Left behind are family

                          loved ones

                          mothers

 

Their tears soaking

Seeping into a permaint body

Sorrows unspoken

A breaking that is united in pain

 

Each tear dropplet despoited in the stream

The saltiness burning the pain

Rushing tears rolling over and over

Washing

Submerging

Overwhelming

Where the idea of drowning is renewed with each second of every day

 

This stream

Born on the backs of concerned individuals

Where the idea of a damn isn't enough

For along has life is devalued

Tears will collect and flow as a rushing stream

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
