Forward he marches through scornful laughter

Undaunted eyes set on hopes of here after

A gauntlet of piercing stares line his way

And condemning glares say all hate can say

As he strides ever on steps

In time with his hearts rhythm and rhyme

to the end of his day

Forevers seductive smile shatters sense

And bids him acquiesce from this solitary life


But we don’t see,

we’ve made ourselves blind

And we don’t care,

we’ve closed our minds

And we don’t move,

we’re so paralyzed

As we sit in heartlessness watching him die

Dead to immunity,

dead to society

Fearing the slow decay of dignity the posterchild

For walking deadmen longs for the now

to be way back when


And I see him everyday along his road

Fading away manifest in the downcast,

Recluse and outcast lepers of this age

The innocent incaged by paranoid,

misinformed minds

Enter the champions of love (so called) singing loud

Grinning as they spit out their words

So proud are the hearts unmoved by songs and ideals?

Wading through the rhetoric to clutch something real
