The Black Pearl

image borrowed from bing

The Black Pearl

Screaming in constant bangs
Echoes of silenced souls.
Untouchable, yet irreplaceable,
in the heart of a country...

Heroism, not to go to waste.
Tears flood the water,
salt the world can taste.
Children without a father
Tears at the seam of a nation.
In infamy it lives.

Time fades, words linger.
Stories of annihilation retold.
Wounds constantly reopening.
Betrayal, not to be forgotten,
For thousands of lips...
forever sealed.
