Favorite Quote:
She lives in a story she dares not write.
~C. K. Schetterer


Burning, burning, burning.

Why don’t they listen?
Why don’t they care?

The pain is all around,
The red hot pain.

Why don’t they listen?
Why don’t they care?

That we are burning,
Being burned alive.

Why don’t they listen?
Why don’t they care?

That the flames eat us,
That the heat drinks us dry.

Why don’t they listen?
Why don’t the care?

That we are withering,
That we are dying.

Why don’t they care?
That we are dead.
