Lost Youth

They say I wait alone for one so long ago,
But the boy across the street is no more.
The girl he loved, too, ceased to be.
They are buried there in borken heart
Beneath the calloused scars
Engraved: Ignorance and injustice.
Though bullets missed the boy
Helplessly swinging on a rope,
They killed without a warning.
