So Why Didn't You?



We all saw it

The shoving, the laughing

The mockery

The tears

We saw his pain

As he pushed through a world that didn't want him

So why didn't you?

We all saw them

The bruises, the scars

The black eyes

The fears

As she suffered with a mother that didn't want her

So why didn't you?

We all saw everything

The downcast eyes

The shuffling feet

The fake smiles

The lank hair

The bandaged wrists

The cries for help

The pain inside

The empty desk.
