Watched the birds, smelling the subtle aroma of fresh grass,
Greeting insects with great alacrity, grinning at dew drops that glistened in the light,
Enjoyed the damp sensation,
Until, the sensation across his face spread,
the dew drops on the grass,
Mixed with dread filled red.
Screamed in horror, covering the sounds of the crisp cracking of crippled bones,
the child, being robbed of his honour,
Some ran to him,scrambling across the bloodstained grass and slippery stones,
To save his innocence from this nightmarish torture,
only to join the child’s fate,
of merciless slaughter.
Attempted to revive the corpses of the courageous insects,
But instead, rested their lifeless shells on the soil,
Unable to fathom the ugliness of life,
Steadily crumbling from within,
Endless darkness engulfed his soul.
