rising up kills

another risk

was generations in the making.

tried to warn us

there is nothing we can do.

fires, nightmare scenarios

flames that won’t die out

always behind us.

the never-ending conflict,

isolation and division

this crisis exposes an ugly side.

an intense war,

deliberate,

burns in places that normally don’t see fire.

worries don’t translate.

riven by grief,

forgotten.

the towering lies

waiting to be discovered.

reports of change were exaggerated –

deception coming into focus.

an exodus –

seeking refuge

good cries,

recovery,

learning how to smile again,

how to save a year that’s unlike any other.

forever trying to heal trauma

with one shot.

rising up kills –

sit down

and shut up.
