I am scared,

I don’t know if I will be spared,

Wondering if those I knew even cared,

But grateful for those who cared.


I am scared,

I don’t know if we were prepared,

Has our love for humanity been impaired?

Can the damage caused be repaired?


I am scared,

About how our numbers have been compared,

Protecting human life doesn’t seem to be a goal shared,

My people are prisoners outside home, despaired!


I am scared,

Of the numbers yet undeclared,

But even though we were unprepared,

The spark that needed to do better has been flared!
