One last breathe

feast

frail, at his wits end

ravaged by war and hunger

a  feast for vultures

  1. I wrote a poem about this tragic and horrifying photo too:

    Don’t leave me alone

    You were unkind
    When I was a stranger,
    I only asked for what I need.
    You were unkind,
    When I was a stranger,
    You made me bleed.
    You were unkind
    When I was a stranger,
    I only asked for what I need.
    How could you abandon
    An infant like me?
