Sleep walkin'


a little girl is walking through the world awake but not aware
seeing drugs, rape, abuse but what should she care
things going on everyday she sees them but then she doesn't
she sees the faces but not the person
pain is the normal in the world that is certain
parents thinkin that they are doing better for their children by raping
them at 5 or 15
all of the children they just dream
they don't see what's being done
they see it but they don't read into to it
one day somewhere all the sleepwalkers are gonna see then believe for a better world
maybe just because of that little girl

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
