A cry heard at midnight. Everyone hears it but no one chooses to
act. Everyone ignores it. Everyone decides it will be ok. No one
goes to help. Everyone has heard enough of the crying. Everyone has
heard enough of the screams. They want it to stop. But no one goes
to do it. They only let the screaming continue. Night after night
screaming over and over again. Then finally one night it stops.
Everyone is confused. But happy. No more screams, no more cries, a
night of peace. But they realize what the cost was. Life was the
cost of the screams. In order for it to finally stop someone had to
die. A man was sacrificed for the good of the people. And it wasn't
until the end did they regret it all. Not until the man had finally
had enough did he finally sacrifice himself. Everyone left him. And
now this was the result. Everyone is full of grief and regret. Only
because they did not go to help the one who cried at midnight.
