Fatigue

Today,
My soul cries out.
My heart is torn.
If I remembered how,
I would cry.

For those that are lost.
That can not see
The truth.
That can not see
The lies.

I understand
The choice they have made.
To close their eyes.
To cover their ears.
To turn to stone.

I know why.
They have seen too much.
Too many souls,
Friends,
Enemies.
It doesn’t matter.
Too many souls.
Wounded.
Broken.

How many dreams
Can you watch die?
How many lies
Can you hear?
How many times
Can you watch children
Killing children?

I remember
When he died.
I don’t know who he is.
Who he was.
Struck by a car.
An accident.
He died.

I remember
Too many stories
In the news.
How parents
Murdered their children.
Innocents.

I understand
The choice they have made.
To cover their ears.
To close their eyes.
To turn to stone.

Lost.
Unable to find
Who they are.
Unable to remember
How to smile.
How to cry.
How to laugh.

No longer able
To feel the breeze.
To feel the sun.
To feel their own breathing.
Their own heart’s beating.

Lost.

Looking for hope.
Salvation.
Something.
Anything.
Outside themselves.

New job.
New car.
New house.
Divorce.
Another drink.

Lost.

They can’t remember
To be happy
Is a choice.

Today,
My soul cries out.
How many lost
Can I stand
To see?
