Only numbness now,
feel no pain,
will no longer plead--
for the mercy;
that will not be given--
hope here is gone;
All in despair, looking out with an empty stare,
mind speaks unholy thoughts;
mouth keeps silent;
for the fear of being killed--
being murdered at the hands of hypocrites.
treated only as inanimated objects;
not in the cruelty of this place;
this evil, evil place;
Only questions fill the air now;
left curious and wondering..
What will happen to us?
What will happen to her?
Death stares me in the face;
A dirty reflection looks back at me..
as if I know what to do;
time goes by;
and I can only tell day from night..
by moon or daylight;
these dirty clothes we wear..;
were stripped from the deceased;
Bunkers are crowded;
filled with people in agonizing pain;
Its hard to sleep..
When all you hear are their moaning cries..
Soldiers don't feel our pain;
Acting on what they're told;
Yelling cruel names..
senseless beatings bring heavy tears;
We're not allowed to feel.
