“THE END OF 2016 WITH #ALEPPO”

How do we end this year with hope and joy?
Where they are, human lives are being destroyed
Here, we will hear the sound of crackling fireworks
but they’ve been having it worse
More dropping bombs
then it’s done and they’re gone

How do we face the end of this year
with them still living in fear?
Their lives are hanging on the line
as we continue to dine with meals so fine
The roofs are above our heads
while the polluted sky leaves theirs with dread

How could we
when they’re one step closer every day
from being erased in history?
