Lullaby

.

My broken heart

longs for a lullaby

because how much

can one person cry

for the monumental mess

humankind has created ?

.

My heart hurts for

the children stolen from

their loving families

.

My heart hurts for

the villages burnt to the ground

in apocalyptic flames

.

My heart hurts for

the whales and fish

broiled in an oceanic fireball

.

How stupid is this?

How selfish is this?

How avoidable is this?

How shit is this?

.

My broken heart

longs for a lullaby

because how much

can one person cry?

.
