This is to anyone daring to care,
willing to heed the cry.
This is to those who have need to dispair
and glance through the hatred and lies.
This is to anyone hoping to reach
and to grasp hold of that which was taken
and this is to those who are striving to breach
through the slit in the heart that is breaking.
This is to anyone drowning in lakes
of darkened scarlet and tears.
This is to those risking lives just to take
a stronger hold of their rampaging fears.
To anyone hiding in shame,
coming up last in this perolous game,
anyone lying in wait just to bear.
This is for you.
Do you care?
