Destiny Unknown

Everyday heroes share the spirit of many as Ukrainian citizens deal with the daily burden of war.  Taken from recent news and photos, many images fill the following verses.

Flood of refugees

Fleeing their homeland

Agony fills hearts

Life’s movements unplanned

 

Others staying behind

Daily grind consumes

Helping in war’s effort

Trauma always looms

 

Lives turned upside down

Seeing each child’s face

What future beholds?

Hope’s welcoming place

 

Every day breathes

Transforming each life

Anguish in real time

Never-ending strife

 

Air raid sirens blare

Witnessing war’s tides

Overwhelming scene

Stress never subsides

 

Women and children

Facing world alone

Husbands serve in war
