Anguish and Panic

“silhouette of children's running on hill” by Rene Bernal on Unsplash

I feel anguish in their falling tears

Tears of separation breeding panic,

Cries in the night from strange places

Places not of their hearts or souls.

I feel their desperate pain and loss

Not made by own deliberate choices,

Forced upon them in barbaric ways
