Love Poem: Afghanistan

Afghanistan


Atrocious thinking and violence are
Father fed to bed sons in hatred sheets
Gowned in anger and false ideology
Heisting their true natures to stimulate 
Abhorrent dogmas justifying violence and suffering - 
News of heartbreaking actions frighten the world
In ways that shadow box our collective fears, 
Subject us to senseless ignorance and brutality
Tapping us in a net of collective nightmares -
Attacking and torturing are no one's true nature.
None but God knows when and how love will overcome.
