My Final Breath - Poem by Joshua Hillard

I watch all these struggles,
But no one watches me,
They pay attention to their selves,
The pain they are inflicting,

You watch as one breaks,
Like dominoes, there goes another,
I've watched so many now,
That the effect hits each other,

One rages as one hurts,
One laughs as one cries,
One climbs as one falls,
One lives as one dies,

How can we go knowing this,
Why God would cause hate and pain,
They sit back worried for themselves,
When another's pain is clear as day,

I've watched as one fell,
Who rose up to fall again,
I've watched as one left,
And death was all ascertain,

With all these abysmal visions,
No one looks at the one quiet,
Who has a heart evolving,
That is screaming for a riot,

But not among others,
But for his own life and death,
So I sit back and continue to watch,
As I prepare for my final breath..
