The Dictator

I watch the news and shed many tears
As I see the little children’s fears
A tyrant chooses an army and genocide
Saying it’s only to kill intruders from the outside

But every day the people die
Just staying alive is all they try
They hide from bombs and an army gun
And the babies cry and the children run

Atrocities like this should never be
These people’s choice is just to flee
They do not deserve such pain and grief
They stand alone for justice and their belief

The people only want peace and a chance to live
But democracy is not what he chooses to give
They've lost their homes, their loved ones and their life
And there is nowhere to hide from all this strife

The pain and misery this oppressor does serve
Shows he is just a dictator with ferocious nerve
He thinks his power will win this despicable show
But independence fights and freedom does grow

One day his fierce path of murder will finally cease
When freedom comes and brings sweet release
And the world will demand his violent life to forfeit  
For he chose terror over the lives of the innocent
