never before I talked to myself never before it needed but today, it all happened. all I have but why it seems everything is far apart. to whom I fight. to whom I disappoint. to whom I love. and to whom I share all.
what's a pathetic moment is? attention outward the cage, how would it rid outta. the concessive mesh not letting to come out and an impressive flesh on limbs this thought doesn't fade
I ashamed of what it happened. if there's something left to see a cause and that's only the regret...
"so be proud and love your regret much as you can until your realize possess to a cause"
never before it needed
but today, it all happened
all I have
but why it seems everything is far apart
to whom I fight
to whom I disappoint
to whom I love
to whom I share all.
what's a pathetic moment is? attention outward the cage, how would it rid outta. the concessive mesh
The smashed ribs, the swollen legs The state of heart every time the ground shakes The endless tears, the unflattering fears The subdued feelings, the impotent states and I realize how helpless I am As everything vanished within seconds
The cracked hopes, the buried dreams The unbearable truths, the painful screams The broken fantasies, the shattered desires The situation where no one admires Tried to stop, I tired to evade Then I realize how helpless I am as everything vanished within seconds
A body lies broken On the freeway ramp curb. A man once stood there Asking for help With his cardboard cutout Plea for societal mercy. Then a car sped too fast, Swerving to make the green light It was never going to catch In this dimension or any other.
Just a moment was all it took.
Did you know he was a soldier Who was haunted at night By the enclosed confines of his house Because it too closely resembled The urban landscape he fought in, Faced death in, lost friends in, Got caught in until the web of his mind Couldn't ever forget it Especially when he tried to sleep at night?
Did you know he came back And tried to fit in to the community He had been born and raised in But found that the stares and glances Of wonder and horror laced With misunderstanding and pity He didn't need but couldn't escape Were too much for him to bear Because though he could Look the enemy in the eye It hurt too much to see His own father couldn't meet his, And a community takes its cues On how to treat its people From those closest to them, So, soon no one would look him in the eye?
Did you know all that when you passed Where he stood every day on the curb Asking for your pity and spare change, Having become the uttermost disgrace In his own eyes, Because don't you know He used to be somebody?
Did you know that today, When you made a split second Choice to speed up the turn, He'll be buried in the National Cemetery With an honor guard And a three rifle volley salute, But the chairs will be empty And no one will speak kind words for him, Because he's already been forgotten?
How else could you run over him, And drive off with not a glance back??
