Seen In the Eyes of the Innocent

Seen in the eyes of the innocent
by David Dvorak


Seeing sorrow & dread
In the eyes of the caged innocents
Knowing only torture & death
Awaits them around the next corner

~

All is not at peace
All is not as it should be

~

Giving all I have & doing all I can
That they never have to live with this fear
Waking to grieve for those that perished as I slept
Knowing even more shall join these dead soon

~

All is not at peace
All is not as it should be

~

Wanting to even this dying field
& willing to do all it takes
Losing my life or limb
No longer even a remote concern

~

Acting out in defense of the voiceless
As all is not at peace
Resisting those responsible & guilty
As all is not as it should be
