The tears in her eyes

The tears in her eyes

A piercing silence
tears the tranquil of life and
shatters mute souls,as
an innocent gets killed for
temporary amusement.

She lays lifeless down,
her blood flows incessantly.
She’s mourning as tears
flow from her eyes; as if they
ask the reason for her fault.

Her kids rub their nose
against her; surrounding her,
whispering their cries.
Afraid and unaware of
the injustice that happened.

Her dead eyes depict-
her happy family ruined,
her kids turned orphan.
Can we ever empathize
for the sad tears in her eyes?
