Still They Flow

Who am I to weep
from a broken heart

while sirens scream
through the city

as they rush
to the rescue

of a tragedy
much greater than mine?

Who am I to cry
over a broken promise

while bombs drop
through the sky

as they fall
to explode

on a world
more mangled than I can comprehend?
