Are We Not Humans Too?

The world speaks words of concern,
for those affected by disasters,
yet the care not for their own people,
when they begin the first gun shot of war.

They say war determines strength,
but ask the inhabitants of these lands,
this fight is nothing but blood and gore,
claiming thousands of innocent lives.

We dream for a harbinger of change,
for the day this brainless fight will end,
yet they go on like it's just a game,
as if we were only born to die.
