The World Around Her

Close your eyes and imagine the peace,
No wars in the streets.
Close your eyes and imagine this world,
The dark cloud, the heat, the innocence of little human beings.
Drawings painted in her mind,
How this beautiful world is all combined,
Screaming souls disturb the dreams,
The little one starts to scream.
She lost her family and home,
The little one begins to moan.
The world full of hatred,
Her mind has faded.
People like you and me,
Drowning in a deep sea.
With no help, just fear, no joy but grief, how can I smile while the innocent cry?
Close your eyes and imagine the peace, the world and how people live.
