Omran Daqneesh

Bewildered, five year old boy... alone on an orange ambulance chair
A ghost-like, bloodied crumpled face... haunts the world with his vacant stare
Dishevelled, ashen... enshrouded in dust; a frozen statue of fear  
Will the killings stop now... or will we just shed more futile, guilt-laden tears?

Omran, he does not cry out for his mum... merely wipes the blood from his eye
Only knowing death, hunger and carnage... the whole of his entire life
This abominable scene isn't unique... shamefully it's happened before
Hundreds of kids killed, maimed, orphaned; together we must act now... BEFORE there are more!
