Living Through A Genocide

I’m living through a genocide
Thousands of innocent children died
Bombed, crushed, torn in pieces
I simply feel numb inside
I’m living through a genocide…

Carpet bombing day and night
Open prison, no place to hide
I don’t see with my Western eyes
Yet I’m living through a genocide

Mainstream media and their lies
I happily inhale, I oblige
I don’t flinch, don’t empathize
While I’m living through a genocide

But they’re from a higher creed
Their homes flattened, hearts bleed
In billowing smoke they can’t breathe
Yet God’s praise they utter indeed.

Faith increased with greater plight
A special people, dignified
How we have utterly failed them
Our indifferent souls have surely died

That’s the ultimate genocide!
