The smallest coffins are the heaviest!

The smallest coffins are the heaviest. ..yesterday was the darkest day….
Let’s all pray for those tiny innocent souls who were laid to rest in the cowardly act by the barbarics
In the comfort
of my warm home
snug in a quilt
i ponder and think
of the mothers who
in the morning each
had dressed her child,
ironing the school uniform
and packing the tiffins
with love and life ,
Telling him to wear
an extra layer
as it was cold outside.
As a mother somewhere
had tied ribbons on
her daughter’s pigtails and
kissed the face bright.
Hundreds of mothers
now shriek with agony
in my neighbourhood
for their children who today died
Their bodies charred with guns
which were long laden with
bullets of hatred and strife
Today humanity lost
and barbarism won
and innocent lives paid the price
The world howls
and shrieks in shock
and disbelief
and lets out
a collective cry of plight
A mother clutches
to her son’s school bag
and lets out a deafening cry
A father looks towards
the door in wait of the child
who was his pride
And though numb with pain
I do nothing
I just sit watching
the tv uptight
Then I silently get up
and go to
my children’s warm rooms
and hug them tight !
The smallest coffins are the heaviest. ..yesterday was the darkest day….
Let’s all pray for those tiny innocent souls who were laid to rest in the cowardly act by the barbarics
