Emily Knight

Quiet Injustice

The suffering, the pain
It all adds up to nothing
Too much has been forgotten
Will life continue to go on?

This quiet injustice
Never given a moment’s thought
The silent screams of those who have fallen
Reaching out to the lost

The blood shed, the bodies burned
The innocent lives taken
The nightmare remains with the dead
And for them vengeance will never be sought

This quiet injustice
Never given a moment’s thought
The silent screams of those who have fallen
Reaching out to the lost
