listen

I've heard their story's and felt their pain, were the same,
I listen with a bleeding heart and open ears,
I cry for those who haven't truly lived in their years,
I feel ones pain to the scorching memory of ones past,
Yet,
I go home to it as they do, I feel their pain and sadness,
I cry for those who have worse an yet a family who cares,
What is worse for a child a infant to bare?
Some ask "what is a family"? I tell them I don't know,
Sympathetic looks and sadden faces of those happy,
who have heard our story and heed our pain,
What do I give to those who have tried yet failed an killed?
Not a murdered man but a slaughtered heart an a shattered soul,
I give them nothing!
For they caused our pain our hurt and our eventual death,
They are the cause for our problems the drugs and suicide,
Why wont you listen!
Hear our cries an carry us to safety,
Why wont you help us, instead you hurt us and burn our hope!
Why should we love you for what you have done to us?
All we ask is listen! listen to the crying children hanging by a thin thread,
An if you cant listen then take our place walk in our shoes and feel how we do!
Then tell us that you don't understand an you wont help us,
Cause now you are us, an we will always be there haunting you till you die,
Cause then an only then will you hear our cries an feel our pain an the slow death after.
All you had to do was listen.
