When Syria was falling apart as Assad began to strangle the country this is what i wrote in August last year

smoke encroaches the sky
men gather
unarmed
by the barricades
gunfire rattles
a chattering fear,
they move in groups
seem aimless powerless
what to do
to call , to chant
to pray,
to unify,
and hope together
will survive
tank wheels
closer now,
fear a sharpened
sword swinging ever closer
do you hide
inside,
or call and shout
defiance.
