In just one minute

In just one minute
A father beats his son
In just one minute
He’s ashamed of what he’s done
In just one minute
A sad girl cuts on the floor
In just one minute
Another goes from prep to wh0re
In just one minute
A boy puts a gun to his head
In just one minute
He falls lifelessly to his bed
In just one minute
A girls raped by her boyfriend
In just one minute
So many wish for life’s end.
In just one minute
A begger freezes on the street
In just one minute
Someone gives in to cuttings defeat.
In just one minute
A wife is hit with her husbands belt
In just one minute
She’ll have a new welt
In just one minute
A kid runs away
In just one minute
So many wish for it to be a different day.
In just one minute
Somebody wants to disappear.
In just one minute
Someone’s crying, if you listen you’ll hear.
In just one minute
At school theres a bomb threat
In just one minute
A drug addiction leads to debt.
In just one minute
A girl feels so alone
In just one minute
You’ll be done reading my poem.

    You write about the truth hun...everyone needs to hear it and you seem to have a good grasp on what is really there, what people like to pretend isnt real but is really hapening all around them...they secretly know it too...its good to have someone like you in this screwed up world that speaks the truth...
