We walk amongst broken glass yet fail to notice the pain.
We shower ourselves with poison
We hold onto nails that pierce through fragile veins.
We put ourselves in fire, then complain about the heat
We eat and drink death wishes, and sleep next to defeat
Yet fail to notice we’re dying, slowly from our head down to our feet.
We cry teardrops of acid, wiping them away, as it burns down our cheeks.
We ask the sky for help, and shut it up when it speaks.
We give out ice-cold hearts that carry selfishness and lies.
Blocking innocence against a vandalized wall as it pleads and it cries.
We hurt each other and ourselves, than we dare to ask why.
We bring pain amongst ourselves, and watch each other as we cry.

I was hoping this speaks for itself.
