Bali Poem

Hello everybody, just a short post before I leave for an important event! I was reading through my diary earlier on and I came across a poem I wrote back in 2005 after the Bali Bombings.. Hope everyone likes it :)

A flash in time, just a moment in history,
Reasons why, remain a mystery,
Paradise lost never to be regained
Bali natives forever defamed.

A jewel of an island, set around blue sea,
No hint of sadness, all , pleasure and fancy free
All lost in a flash, with the blast of a terrorist bomb
Our Bali haven, forever gone.

The bombing occurs, silence rings in our ears,
Just that second, then comes the screams and tears
Lives cut down all in a nameless cause,
Terrorists laugh, with a macarb applause.

Innocents abroad, with no hint of danger here,
Seeking pleasant memories, they came from near and far,
Young and old alike mingling in a merry throng
Laughters loud, keeping in time to a happy song,

To what purpose this waste of human life,
We ask the question what means this callous strife,
Does it serve a purpose does it service some grand plan,
Or does it just illustrate a crazy man's inhumanity to man.

Hope everyone likes the poem ;)
