"life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take but by the number of moments that take your breath away"


Run and hide you know its there,
the little child standing there,
skin so soft but pulled so tight,
his small bones show a disturbing sight,
dirty mother hides in darkness,
cradled infant sleeps so breathless,
pushed to a corner, she starts to cry,
can't escape walls so high,
death creeping through her blood,
hands shaking soon she's done,
sickness grabs not one but both,
a cruel fate laughs then it chokes,
gone within the blink of an eye,
so just go run and hide
