Tears of a Concerned Citizen

"I weep".


I weep

Not for me or the society we live in

But for the cries and wails of the failed child


I weep

Not for the incessant darkness

But for the light slowly fading from our eyes


I weep

Not for the wickedness of our leaders

But the average person whose opportunity is hindered


I weep

For the terror we live in everyday

And the deaths we witness in shades

For the cries of help ignored by those of power

And the need of fame rising above the need to empower


Above all I weep

Not for the end of world

But the souls that won't be moved by this words
