My heart bleeds

 For the innocent and their needs

 I want justice

 And the government upon their knees

 When people become words on paper

 The paper into a stack to be

 Filed for later

 But the truth still remains

 A cold case, yet to be explained

 How is it one’s life is worth more?

 That my life can be simply

 Ignored?

 My freedom buried in judicial

 Decisions

 But didn’t even Columbus have

 A vision?

 When none chose to believe

 The truth that lay beyond what they could see

 Where is my land of New Hope?

 That I may be free of this rope

 Set around my throat

 As society watches me choke

 Beyond mad I’m infuriated

 I would sit back and watch

 Satan be inaugurated

 Just to give evil a face

 In what I lay in the quake

 Of this nightmarish place

 Wishing only to one day wake

 To a world that could do right

 Or at least recognize its mistakes.
