"Schools corrupt the mind." The Loco Focos


I hear nothing
when people talk
and when they don’t
I feel them walk.

In the silence
I hear the world
I hear her groaning
wishing for peace
I hear her moaning
wishing quiet

In silent noise, I hear it called
from all the voices
old or small

Protect my family
keep me safe
help me earn
that last good grade

I know you know
how I feel
so can you help me to heal?

But in the end,
no one answers
and loved ones die
of evil cancers.
The grade is shot
you won’t heal.

I hear nothing
when people speak
but when they don't
I feel they're weak


The author's comments:
This is sort of questioning religion i guess. It's the way I feel currently on the 'god' situation. it's also about people who pretend to care, but really don't. They talk and act but don't give a crap.
