A cry from the heart

jpoet7/Joseph Black Photography

Forlornly she stared into the distance.The years of hardship etched into her lonely face.

She had lost everything, and now the ultimate loss.

Too old to travel she is left alone and destitute.

Standing amidst the ruins of her miserable life.

She watched as in the distance her family left

bundled unceremoniously into tiny rafts.

A child tightly hugging a filthy teddy bear.

Her tear stained face streaked in muddy streams.

No tears left to shed in her wide brown eyes

she can but hope that her children will survive.
