What Do You Do?

What do you do

When your voice is lost

Among the crowd?

When you're crying out

Your pleas turn to shouts

Demanding a rescue?

 

What do you do

When everything you've

Ever wanted

Is taken before

You lay a claim?

 

When everyone you've

Ever loved

Has never spared you

A glance?

 

When everywhere you've

Wanted to be

Is suddenly shut tight

Locking the gate?

 

What do you do

When the people hurting you

Are the ones you love?

And they don't see

The scars they leave.

 

When he

Turns his back

When she

Laughs with him

When they

Abandon you?

 

What do you do

When you have

Nothing?

The End
