Nightmare

Written by Tolu Toludo

Our dreams morph into nightmares

as missiles rain on our roofs.

 

Home becomes a mountain of rubble,

and we pick fragments of hope

to journey into strange lands.

 

 

These dark skies grieve for us,

as our night’s light is engulfed in smoke billows.

We pray to go back in time

but the passage of memory is broken.
