you see her everyday
she walks through your hallways
always smiling
but what you dont see
is that with every wound of someone else she heals
another one forms inside of her
it breaks her heart
to see the hate
to see the dissimulation and distrust
I thought we were suppoused to all be friends, she says to herself
this joy they show, it should not come from others pain
she plants herself between the accuser and her victims
but with every blow she blocks them from
another piece of her falls away
