Devouring!

As if directed by dark unseen forces

spreading from a acrid domain

flames ignited consuming everything

once arid forests and homes

swiftly succumbed to the raging fires

rising into black smoke spires!

 

Devouring all living matter in its wake

nothing sacred with such heat

those grasslands now totally destroyed

nothing left but smoldering ashes

in communities no matter their prestige

as each became under siege!

 

Ferocious and hungry any daylight masked

their lungs gasping to breath

trapped as they perilously tried to escape

the routes to safety fading

facing ahead death anguish and disbelief

victims united by loss and grief!

 

From the ashes soon comes another dawn!

Trapped!

Trapped in a city under siege no way to escape

barrage of heavy gun fire!

That never seems to stop as it gets closer

explosions shaking your being!

As death is all around at every second

your existence to could end!

 

Dust dirt and blood wherever you turn

cry’s of pain stench of death!

Hell on earth without a glimmer of hope

to even comfort you!

Government troops your people’s enemy

encroaching on your territory!

 

Each shattering explosion brings the horror closer

citizens caught in the barrage!

As the resistance fighters struggle to retaliate

with their inferior weapons!

In the end overwhelming odds tell the story

they don’t speak of glory!

 

Conflicts blight increasing nations before our eyes

rising the crescendo of their cries!
