The Unheard Files

Lifeless hearts, full of hatred,
Taken for a ride by a Satan appearing sacred.

The sufferings of a community replayed for small gain,
Hiding many emotions and a nation’s pain.

Unveiling stories seldom brings change,
What cannot be corrected, often ends in vain.

A magnitude of atrocities committed under the sun,
A tale with altered lyrics presented for timely fun.

The truth shall arrive and falsehood perish,
When narration replaces fiction for all to cherish.
