No Dreams Future

“Words can’t hurt,” there’s nothing there,
“A bunch of air,” that is what they tell them.

Who to tell when there’s no care?
Did you stand, act, or did you stare?

To you the skies are clear,
but to them the clouds are storming.

Amongst all the laughing, among the jostling,
The crowds divided.
Witnessed the rape of their spirit,
Could you hear their cries of silence?

Were Pa and Ma proud of you?
Become the hero you wanted?
Was it in the name of God?

Make a stand,
Betray a friend,
Pretend it never happened?
Did you forget,
Start witch hunts,
Never thought to call it quits?

Victimize the victims,
Cause they’re the problem,
Kiss and Make Up.

Failings of our education,
Did they find that it was worth it?

Who stood with the “in crowd,”
Who else felt that it was wrong?
No way to unleash and vent,
Those feelings pent up and break.

Policies, regulations, and religion;
Diplomacy will fail; it’s only a matter of time.

Your red pens graded the tests,
But never checked their minds.

We aren’t rubber but words are like sticks and stones,
No, they never broke my bones,
But they certainly shattered the heart.
Never once sweet, but always bitter and sour.

And we stood by as their spirits were flicked out,
Let the fear mongering in our schools and workplace exist.
Who am I to say what’s wrong, to believe in,
to wish for the correction, reworking of the system.

Make a stand,
Betray a friend,
Pretend it never really happened?
Praying for them,
It isn’t enough,
Is this where it all begins?

Use your voice,
Raise your fist,
Who is willing to finally listen?
Make the choice,
One difference,
Become the change no one else is.
Minimal Impact
Original title:  Vanish / Denial.  Something I brainstormed for October in particular.  Some lines I would change, but I had difficulty changing lines.  I get stuck in a linear fashion and have a hard time modifying stanzas.

I'm feeling rather content this summer and entering fall.  Not a lot of negativity.  Hopefully this will continue.
