An attempt at a poem about the world 🌎 

Can you help me?

It’s just the world has changed and I am not sure I recognise it anymore 

At what point did the sea

Pure and cleansing 

Begin washing up the bodies of those escaping war?
When did it begin, I ask

That the notion of fearing and berating those of another skin colour 

Became the norm 

“No dogs, No blacks, no Irish”
Is this soon set in stone?

“No dogs, no Muslims, no refugees”

At what point will the world stop turning?

When will bombs stop falling in the name of peace?

Never has the shakesperian phrase been so true

That there are indeed daggers in men’s smiles

They gleam in the mouths of corrupt politicians 

Who put money before the masses

Can you help me please?

For I, like many

Am lost and afraid


[apologies, it’s been awhile. Third year of uni is tooo busy. I just sort of jotted this out!]
