Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness


I want to write about Ukraine but what can I say?
I sit at home, while they are being preyed upon.
In school they taught me about the Holocaust and WW2:
They said,
“And the world was silent”
and none of us could comprehend,
How the world stands by and watches
while so many people are being slayed.
Now it’s the same,
The world stands still.
No actual goodwill.
People keep getting killed.
Seizing Yachts doesn’t help those on the ground.
Boom boom boom boom, and no one makes a sound.
What can I say besides
“I’m sorry for your pain,
You are heroes and
I would have done the same.
Go ahead and protect your home.
Globalization is but a fake idea,
As you can see, You are all alone.
A lot of power can come from knowing that,
Go and make your enemies say Blyat’.”
My roots are from both Russia and Ukraine,
I guess I have to say “Goddamn.”
I wish the world was more humane,
Because we are all the same.

    I feel so sad about Ukrain and I don’t know when it will stop. There’s nothing that can reverse the loss on ukraine, but I want it to stop.

    I have to agree with you. I, too, feel ashamed that the whole world – especially, the UN and the United States – make speeches and express their sympathy while actually doing nothing.

    1. Tut Yashar Avatar

      Yes this is so sad and I agree, shameful. There are so many things to say about this, but beyond all it’s just sad.

    I’m of Ukrainian descent, and I don’t understand this war. It seems like utter madness.

      It’s terrible. It’s all about the economy and control just like everything else bad that happens. Bad people doing bad things
