I envy the buried faces
For they have been spared from today’s tragic news
No Middle East tension to haunt them at night
Or political feud to twist their cheerful smiles
I envy the buried faces
For they have been spared from drastic climate change
No earth-shattering quakes to set off their fright
Or dreadful typhoons taking their lives
I envy the buried faces
For they have lived a life of genuine bliss
No phones or gadgets to pull them worlds apart
No selfishness or chauvinism to separate their hearts

Written for I envy the buried faces…
