TURMOIL: GUNS. NO ROSES
BRIEF LOOK ON THE REPERCUSSIONS OF THE NOT-SO 21ST CENTURY WAR
As the air have gone dry,
The wind gave you burns forcing you to cry,
But without making you try,
The land above your feet, now anticipated to hide.
When everything is soon to be annihilated, everything seems lethal where it abandons all human rights in favor of force and will alone. This bloodshed leads to dried scars being unfurled. It left monotonous expressions. It also makes you feel devoid of life and deserted within the imaginative perception of your body floating in mid-air.
INVOLVEMENT OF THE INNOCENT AND A MAJORITY OF HEROISM BEHIND UNIFORMS
Tiny silhouettes maneuvering peek-a-boo,
Gave the loudest of wails, longest of tantrums too,
Mourning for the ghostly ghosts of armed Pop and Mum,
That proudly carried their graves, no sign of humdrum.
Images of youngsters who are instantly being made orphans have been shuttering the eyes of citizens from a variety of cultures & beliefs. Men in uniform frequently sacrifice themselves for the welfare of mankind, even if it means leaving their loved ones behind. They also isolate themselves on every target that is related to their passion and principle. They are the ones who have the fortitude not to fight for what is right, but to protect those they loved, love, and will continue to love even after they cross over.
TWO DIFFERING LANDS IN EASTERN EUROPE AND NORTHERN ASIA
A nit-picking banner of white, blue and red,
The homeland of the Archangel Blues which earlier said,
“MEOW!,” might now be barking up a lonely tree as it led,
“ARF!,” it later said as it turned into a beastly half-bred.
Russia is not only a wealthy country, but also the world’s largest cactus, which no country dares to touch. Several countries would be afraid to do so, not out of fear or cowardice, but out of uttermost respect, decency, and the ability to detect diplomatic concerns. This country of superlatives is propelled by bravery and determination. “God is with us!” they proclaim. “’For Faith, Tsar, and Fatherland'”, always pushing forward with clarity, nothing could be clearer if everyone could only comprehend where they’re coming from.
A helpless canvas painted in blue and yellow,
Has drawn curiosity from the entire map’s eagle eyes to and fro,
A dashing mice slowly getting crippled from the piercing darts of Northeast,
Now, vying for a cheese to be served before everything ends with a grand feast.
Ukraine has a diverse terrain and well-preserved customs and traditions, but it is also one of the most educated among all other nations. This country must not be used as a conflict zone nor a battleground. It should not be targeted militarily because it stems from the same origin as the one who declared a special military action. The world witnessed how bullets rained down indirectly on Ukrainian civilians as if no one’s life was at risk. As the conflict escalates, citizens’ urge to aspire for the seemingly unattainable has maintained its momentum, accompanied by hope and zeal, at least until everything is resolved with either victory or defeat.
THE WALKING DILEMMA AND THE DEADLY PHANTOM
With countless heads facing the ground,
Panting breaths craving for life came around,
Tombs that has never been reached,
Hinted at lives wasted as if a contract breached.
From buildings to homes, burnt into ashes deep down,
Military forces bombarded the chief of the town,
From everything to something to nothing,
Biting bullets, visible enough to fathom, yet worth nonexistent.
When reality is delved into, unfortunately, everything is unpredictable. If only all civilians involved could have their hearts cut open and brought to light. There were lifeless bodies strewn about, some of which were not even identifiable. Homes that are now little more than empty shells with no roofs. If this is called humanity, humans no need to be humans, then.
THE RAREST TRADE-OFF, NOW TURNED INTO AN INEVITABLE NUISANCE
Two countries, keep on exchanging candles,
A friction so negatively unrestrained and endless,
Still geared up for a much bigger mess,
Yet appeared so numb from the world’s sincerest caress.
