PUNISHMENT FOR BEING A HUMAN

 

As quiet places
turn victims to sudden fires
in a flash,

As laughs and giggles
turn into shouts and tears
in a flash,

As complete strangers
become the owners of our being
in a flash,

As those with guns and bombs take our lives
as they forget the value of theirs
in a flash,

It is now that I realize
that this is the Punishment for being a human
in this world meant for just lifeless things…

    1. I’m trying to imply that human beings are under a constant threat of being killed due to rising terrorism. Only the nonliving things are spared in this warfare.
      Altogether, it seems that this world is meant for just lifeless things and not humans.

      Thanks for visiting, Brendon!
