You hear the screams

You cover your ears

You're scared and crying

You want to help

But you don't

You only worry that you'll get hurt

You fight yourself

Tearing yourself apart

You fool

You coward

It's over now

And you didn't help

They're bruised and beaten

You try to comfort them

They don't want comfort

They sit silently

Tears streaming from their eyes

You ask yourself

Why didn't you help?

Now you sit behind the eyes of the offender

Blade in hand

You take a stand

Now they no longer will
