Cannot Escape

      " We cannot escape

They are coming

With poisoned words

And glinting swords

          We cannot escape

They are marching

Towards us and towards the war

            We cannot escape 

We're the only ones left

I gave you my word

           We cannot escape 

The ones left behind 

Their story never heard

           We cannot escape

Once crystal clear 

Now the lines are blurred 

           We cannot escape 

Sent to die alone

At the stake we are burned 

 

 

This poem is about: 
Our world
