Shattered

IMG_0943

The dreams of a child

Are broken with age

The cries die inside

Replaced now with rage

 

We hold it all in

And channel our will

It sometimes escapes

Perhaps then to kill

 

But daily we live

Wound tight on a string

We never let loose

To sanity we cling

 

For fear of reprisal

So silent the word

That wants to be free

That wants to be heard

 

We now need to want to

And not just to hide

Alone we are not

Remember which side

 

Our strength is together

Our will could be strong

Dissension among us

Can only be wrong

 

Remember the dreams

You once had as a child

Remember the times

You actually smiled
