Tears of adversity have no free fall-
Traversing scars of sacred land.
True hunger tortured by possibility-
Travesty that despair is endemic.
They pray and look towards skies above-
Though only misery showers down upon them.
Tropical diseases hail down in buckets-
Terror strikes like lightning at hearts.
That tape mend broken souls is impossible
Thoughts arise amidst chaos.
Trinity. Hope. Love. Naivety.
Turn our backs-
Triage other things,
Target a more just dream otherwise.
