(09/01/2013) Altruism

altruism rep
 
I read in the paper
A murder last night
And thought to myself
This is not alright
8 days to the year
Someone dies in a fight
Can someone tell me
Where is the light
I can’t see it
Lost from my sight.
 
A hero in waiting
Strolls silently by
To only stand up
When he can no longer cry
For the innocence lost
For the heroes that die
Then silence again
For the heroes that rise
And the people in silence
Who watch as time flies.
