Jerusalem's streets, once bustling with people are now silent, like a widow broken with grief she sits alone in her morning. Once the queen of a nations, she is now a slave.
She sobs through the night; tears stream down her cheeks. Among all her lovers, there is no one left to help her. All her friends have betrayed her; they are now her enemies.
