For all the Baghdads of this world

Yet another mindless crime against humanity, driven by the rage of injustice and blind despair, hidden behind beliefs that never condoned hatred or violence. What can we do but sit there and weep in silence?

These words came to my mind yesterday while reading the news.

Self bomber
Suicide killer
Is it despair
That pushed you there?

What hate or lie
Did justify
No religion

Faceless victims
Murderous whims
Who’s your target?
Why a market?

Blown to bits
Random hits
Pools of blood
In the mud

Your last act delivered
My questions unanswered
Shattered lives
Horror cries

I don’t judge
Hold no grudge
To your deeds
Rest in peace.
