The situation in Afghanistan has caused many to have cried.
Its with the deepest dread that I tell you, that many more have died.
That terror organisation tells people that their rights are no longer true,
That anyone who dissents with them, has a meeting with death due.
And every time a child is sold to a grown man to be "wed",
My heart, trapped inside these caged ribs, has indefinitely bled.
And every time someone is shot by those truly "righteous men",
I wonder whether the sword might be, actually mightier than a pen?
For all I feel I can do, is string some words together,
And wait, paralyzed, with helpless hands for what seems, an entire country to end forever.
