Forgotten People

Walking through the ashes of what used to be lives
Not a person alive in sight
They fought this fight every day
Now they’ve gone away years before their time
Committed no crime but living
Cried cries that will never be heard
Can you hear that sound?
Can you see that person begging?
Can you feel their pain?
Written in blood and tears are their tales
Tales you never thought could be real
Pain never thought one could actually feel
Living day after day in fear of dying
No air in their lungs
Suffocated by the explosions
Buildings falling
Ground shaking
This place they call home is breaking
Falling to pieces
This nightmare never ceases
Opening their eyes to fall into this harsh reality
No way to escape this
Can you take them away from their world?
Can you feel the pain in their lives?
Can you see that person dying?
Written in blood and tears is their tale
Tales you never thought could be real
Pain never thought one could actually feel
Step outside your world
Step outside your propaganda
Step outside your ego
Go away from from your home
Go see the child living alone
Shown from birth the ways of loss and destruction
Lose your false perception of reality
Leave the vanity behind
Stop the insanity and tell the tales of the forgotten people
