The hardest part to digest,
Is not seeing the gaping wounds on shocked victim’s faces.
Nor is it the bitterest pill to swallow,
Seeing their homes savagely brought to the ground.
Yes, there were many hopes destroyed,
And yes, many positive outcomes murdered,
But the most painful reality to witness,
Is the loss of innocence that now exists.
The fact that the purity of good people has been stripped away,
Is the greatest crime of them all.
Thus the saddest truth,
Is not – the deeds of the passing army, done,
But that we like them, have become.
