A World In Pain (Over Beats by Jurrivh)- Benie, audio

A World In Pain

She sat there, on a bench
Crying alone.
She sat there,
And all she wanted to do
Was cry
Alone.
And she looked down
At her hands,
Scars.
Her little feet,
Burns.
A tear dropped,
A bitter tear
As she cried
Alone.
The pain was felt
Of life, lost―
Everything, everyone
True, dear
Lost,
To the nature
Of humanity,
Reality
And it pained her
It chocked her
And she cried
As she watched them―
The humans
Live life…
A couple somewhere
Kiss,
A mother elsewhere
Bids a child bye,
A dad,
Returns home
From service.
She watched
The humans
Live life
And all she felt
Was emptiness.
But little did she know
That she was not alone;
That many like her
Ached,
And it was a world
In pain;
A universe
Of mourners,
A graveyard
Of dreams, wishes
Victims.
And as she sat there
At the bench
And cried…

John,
His name was,
Visited the same diner
From before.
He looked through the window
Weighing
The emptiness
In his heart;
The sadness,
The pain,
Memories―
The past,
The state
Today.
And the weight―oh!
It was a world
In pain.
