One Finger To The World - Poem by D.J. Ray

Who cares anyway?
It all sinks into another scar on a many scarred body
Another life passes into darkness
Another red line across a whipped back
But one day
One day soon
The whip will be returned on the handler
The dead will rise from his grave
Walking among us
The scars will fade into oblivion
I hope I live to see that day
When my pain is rebounded upon the society which hates me
That would rather me dead
And in it.
I will stand
Never to destroy
But to watch
Create order among the chaos
Rebuilding not only what was destroyed
But remaking it
Greater than ever before
Healing among the lepers
Feeling among the numb
And sight among the blind
We will lash out
The unwanted masses among society
We welcome you
Join us
For no one should be ignored
We are the poor
The weak
The underdogs
No one has believed in us
No one helps us when we drown
No one trust us
For no one cares enough to think about it
And so I say
From across the country
NO! From across the globe
Come and let your voice be heard
For they call us losers…
Together we can win
They called us weak…
Together we are strong
They say we are just another gang
We can now prove them wrong
Join me
Unnamed masses of the world
Have a hand in creating this
This poem of true life
And together we will create a new nation
Not ruled by war
But by peace
Not by hate
But by love
No more pain
But feel your happiness
With us you are no longer alone
We are the Excalibur of the modern day
But instead of steel we have muscle bone and sinew
The weapon all can wield if they only try
So join me and all countries shall fly under one banner
No more shall we have war
No more shall we have famine
