You’re alone

by apoorvmat

I have bad news
For those of you
Who think of others
And empathize

Those of you
Whose hearts sink
When you hear of misery
Your soul cries

When you read of rape
Your blood boils
You clench your fist
Not rationalize

A million kids – homeless
Still walking, wearing a smile
Watching it on the news
A part of you dies

Peaceful protesters
Accused of causing violence
But you don’t believe
The official lies

The bad news is
That you’re all alone
The hashtags on Twitter
Just deceive your eyes

The core of our world
Is made of cold stone
It cares a damn
About their tears, about your sighs
