Silent War

In a moment of Rage, we want to close our eyes in Disbelieve.

In a moment of intense mourning, we want to say adieu to our fallen heroes and heroines.

Our tears are flowing as deep as the oceans, they are endless and we have not been able to sleep through it all!

But we know the war is real as deep and silent as the grave that has to be digged to put your corpses.

If we could turn back the hands of time... you will be here with us.

Full of Hope and enthusiasm! We only wanted a better life, a better society, this intense hatred is unspoken.

The blood flows like a river... the war unspoken... all we want is to live, to have light, shelter and food on our tables.

How can a hungry man be at rest? How can we be at peace with all the choas?

This war is silent as deep as the hatred is intense and all we want is peace and unity.

That's all we ask for to live a good life full of dreams and hopes and visions and comfort.

We are not asking for much, we never declared a war.

We want the basics...

Human dignity and peace. Let love rule us, let peace win...
