Better - A Poem by Shaheen

Better


It's been a year since the attack.

We tried and fought back.

Life moved onward, month to month

But to what end?


Humans are a resilient species.

Tried to reign in the attack.

We even won a few battles against all odds.

But eventually, we grew comfortable,

Against what was inevitably invincible.


As I sit in my balcony,

Trying to drown out the misery of the world,

I see and hear the joyous shouts and screams,

Of children running around with not a care in the world.


They give me hope,

That one day,

I can look back at this script and think,

"Things did get, Better".
