His Poem


Why do you ignore me
When I know that in your heart we both believe in love?
Why do you forget
That our souls of steel have more hope than anyone?
Why do you hurt
When you see this blood and rage?
Why don't you know
That this is all the world can offer?

There is life somewhere
And there will be no bondage.
There I will be
For you to fall back on.
(Then perhaps the world will let us be alone.)
There will be an
Unbroken promise of security for us to be strong.
