"Said we go to war just to bring us together, I believe in Love, I believe in forever..."

"Eyes see everything..." -Devon Torble,

"Caught up in love"- Joseph M. Lyons,

"I speak my words, through a broken truth,
...I bite my lip, and taste its guilt,
I see heaven on the horizon, but I turn my back,
Paradise must wait,
For when it dies,
The truth shall be revealed…" - Joseph Michael Lyons,

"Seen through an angel’s eyes,
I’ve found love where it truly lies,
And when that angel cries,
All my pain slowly dies…" - Cassandra Burnes and Joseph Lyons


I see rape,
I see war,
But I do nothing…
I see tragedy,
Souls broken to the very core,
But I do nothing…
Lies of heresy,
Trials of witchcraft,
But I do nothing…
I see people burned alive,
The human inhumanities that dwell inside,
But I do nothing…
No more words to escape them; no more cries,
No more people to run and hide,
But I do nothing…
A desolate world,
Darkened and destroyed,
But I do nothing…
A Godless world,
An empty void,
But I do nothing…

I am alone,
Nothing more to protect,
Nothing more to live for,
I did nothing…
So I have nothing,
I did nothing…
So I am…
Nothing…

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem, on the thought/idea that you are just as guilty if you were to watch a crime/injustice or be the one doing yourself...Those who watch the wold fall around them instead of trying to at least help all they can to keep this beautiful place alive, will ultamitely be left with nothing...
