TORN OUT BY WAR

TORN OUT BY WAR (M. Sager, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 80 x 100 cm)

TORN OUT BY WAR

I walk in an unknown, dust burnt by the sun, street, a busy one,
and blocks in a line.
Traces of war on walls, the street’s potholes, slow the convoys,
and directed arms.
Keeping the steady pace, to meet at my place, aimed to displace
and cover my face.
Shooting and hellfire, despite the scene so dire, I’m back to inquire,
and I do see her.
I could shoot as well, an angel from hell; they don’t yell
and then repel.
Torn out of this dream, no way to remain; I hope you’re fine,
and we’ll return.
A better time, peace, less shooting at least, conquered the beasts
and where love wins.
Strong to not lose faith, don’t give in to fight, a temporary night,
and we’re alright.
