Search for safety

where do you search
for safety when hatred
finds stronghold
in hearts and minds

where do you search
for safety?

in a world where faith
is the flashpoint
between life & death
nothing is bomb proof

shattered limbs, lives
and loves lost,
an ordinary place
becomes a mortuary

the echoes of wails of
frightened children
mirror the state of
women & men

where do you search
for safety when hatred
finds stronghold
in hearts and minds
