Only Thing To Do - Poem by Hopeless Heart

The Land is green
The air clean,
Everything is peaceful
Or so it seems...

You can't see into their eyes,
What happens behind the blinds,
You have no idea
Because everything they say is lies

Don't call them weak
Just because they don't speak,
You don't understand
All the reasons they sink

You call them names
Which drives them to cut their veins,
Maybe you should stop
And maybe they'd stop marking their frames

You have absolutly no idea
Just how much they fear,
Every step they take
Is just enough for them to bear

You may hate what they do to themself
But for them it's the best thing they've ever felt,
Tell them off as much as you like
But it isn't going to help

Don't let them hide
Stand strong by their side,
It's the only thing to do
Or else they may die
