Just a sock lying there
on the shattered ground
calling out to humanity
questioning the declaration
that all is fair in love and war
where is fairness
in a life just started
snatched by the bombs of belief
that one cause has more value than another
a child’s sock
tattered and stained
lying where the bombs fell
a life unlived
if that is belief
then fairness is shame

Hi Feets, thank you for your comment
Yes I wrote this from picture I came across in National Geographic while sitting in the waiting room at my doctor’s office.
Is this written on a picture of a sock during war or something? It gives so much imagery that I would think that. Very potent.
