When words are empty

Untrue and weak

When it is useless, senseless

To continue to speak

 

When you know and see

What others deny

When life goes silent

No audible reply.

 

When all is broken

In shambles and torn

When all life is barren

New hope left unborn

 

Raze it raze it

Burn it down

Just dust and rubble

No life found

 

Raise it raise it

From the ground

Protect it well

This time around
