‘Blindness’ by Cristiane Morphine

Eyes sing songs of scarlet
mothers hold fear in their hands.
Children contaminated in conflict zones
and bullets piercing the hearts of broken bodies.

The martyrdom is dumped in rivers,
hatred stuck in fingers.
Boom of damned calibers!
Airplanes dropping mass destruction.

The dirt of evil paints
a war in flesh,
no escape from concentration camps.

The leaders of blindness draw combat and horror,
and soldiers leave their children
in tears, corpses on the ground.
