The Daily Prompt – Savage!

I dare say that all of humanity has fallen to a new low

Enormous acts of savagery occur in the world

And the world has become volatile 

Flooded by acts of terror and violence 

Isn’t that the news we are fed every day?

The cries of people suffering and gnashing their teeth 

Alas! These traumatic stories shake one to the core

People commit all kinds of jungle justice with absolute disregard for the rule of law

Thousands are butchered every day in different places

Heart-wrenching. Disheartening. Frightening.

Stories that touch

Violent explosions and fierce aggressions erupt abruptly anywhere

Millions of people are forcefully displaced

And all these cruelties are perpetrated by some beasts who parade in human form.

What a life of sadness and gloom

For some countries that sink into deeper depths of despair

Due to the despicable and inhumane violent attacks

Every day innocent men, women and children are brutally killed

Some are maimed, displaced and subjected to the most agonising torture

Sadly, these people endure untold pain

And I’d guess the questions on their minds every day 

Was it a crime to be born into this world?

Will this savagery ever end?

Will the world ever be purged of these barbaric actions

Will humanity ever embrace peace instead of war?
