POETRY: Prayer

May 31, 2020 by Ryan So


As the world erupts,

Like a world on fire,

We stare into the Abyss,

Farther and farther.


Clashes and Skirmishes

Rule the land.

As we say our Prayers,

For those who’ve Fallen,

Yet we can’t help but rid All

morals.


It’s funny really, to see where

We’ve come to.

From stones to technology,

Yet from civilized to barbaric.


There are some souls,

That roam this land.

Pure and grand.

We need these people,

More than ever,

Rule this land.

And start again.
