Do we count the heartbeats to understand your worth? And weigh your soul against the dead. You are lifted as a banner and paraded around for a cause, but all you wish to do is truly live. We cry real tears for those that die after a long life and yet we do not blink at denying a chance to brighten the eyes of those to be born. Instead we would dim those eyes till they are dark. A darkness to match the evil that was committed to accomplish the deed.
