The Clock On The Wall

Tick tock.

Tick tock.

The seconds click by faster and faster,

The minutes shed quicker as never seen before

Stress, sweat, and tears of black blood and fury rage inside them

I see it in their faces,

Their questions,

Their horrid smiles.

Nothing is all that remains in their minds.

They have no conscience or remorse,

They care about nothing but themselves,

They flash me a golden wink and try their hardest

It strikes a pit of fear inside me

I will not let them belittle me

I will not be intimidated by those who do not know me,

They will never know me,

I will never know them.

I shall not judge,

As I am not the one who is supposed to.

It is human nature to assume premature opinions,

I have no clue.

I have no idea what they've been through,

What has caused them to do what they have done,

Actions they can never take back,

Situations that have changed the lives of millions all around,

I shall not be afraid.

I will stand a little taller

I will walk a little farther

I will keep my head high and keep my strength,

As that is all I have left.
