Words can do harm as they are broken,
meaningless and forgettable when unnecessary.
The truth has yet to be decided or spoken,
of this treatment we the people are weary.
The pain can still be felt with only a thought,
that is the sounding silence of which I speak.
We started a war that doesn’t need to be fought,
because of the powerfully greedy and weak.
The balance isn’t right and full of anxiety,
things are changing faster than they think.
We are now an information rich society,
those who think like us are making their ideas extinct.
