Aleppo’s Lost Children

The face paint of war:

Blood and ash.

We have simultaneously

Created a generation

Of

War children

Whilst condemning them

To a life of neglect.

We throw around the words

Blame

And shame,

Any kind of self-justification

For sitting by

And doing nothing.

500,000 lives lost,

and nothing to show for it

other than a

thousand-yard stare.
