Just Listen - Poem by BlacknessRose ...

What's wrong with you people?
Why don't you stop?
Can't you hear the cries?
The cries of those who hurt
Those who are dying inside
Those who are beaten
Why won't you do anything?
Why not help?
Be someone's angel
Be someone's savior
You turn on the t.v.
Say 'Oh that's bad'
Turn it off and
Move on in life
You never think
That it was somebody's
Child
Husband
Wife
Friend< br>Brother
Or sister
You hear the yelling
You hear the crashing
And breaking of items
You hear the pleas
And the screams for help
And yet you continue
To sit safely at home
In comfort of the sheltered
Life you live
You've had your chance
To help and yet
Never taken it
Is it because you're scared?
You don't think it could
Happen to you
So you tune it out
Why won't you listen?
Hear the cries of those in need
And please
Just please
Listen
