A Victim

On blood and debris
Her suitcase lies scattered
Stunned by smoke and screams
She sees helpless lives blown to tatters
From her heart she curses the heartless haters
She knows for sure her life is changed forever
Blessing other scapegoats who are like her
She sadly mourns the death of humankind
Whose fault it is, who pays the price
Wonders why she was victimized ever

Prayers for all those who were victimized at Brussels! Some flowers too…

  2. My heart goes to the victims of terror attack in Brussles. I share the pains of the survivors and those who lost there dear ones. Your composition is evocative of the philosopher Voltaire’s poem in the wake of an earthquake in Portuguese titled as ” All’s Not Well”
