The value of the past eludes us.
The same mistakes on repeat.
Reflection would serve us well.
Empathy would too.
Oh, realize the worth of our tragic and harsh history!
Please only go forward, not back.
I worry for my children and future generations.
Sobbing, losing hope with each act of terror.
As I watch this world becoming one of hate and destruction,
I feel defeated.
Filled with sadness,
I still love.
But is it enough?
