Flags painted on cheeks,
As widows silently weep.
An updated profile picture,
After the soul is lost forever.
An article posted online,
While little children whine.
Rage brings people on streets,
But bombs drown their screams.
Vivid photographs capturing pain,
Yet innocent lives die in vain.
The painful echoes of their screams,
Appear on our mobile phone screens.
As we type away in the night,
War engulfs another life.
