In Defense of Simplicity

Standard

Without a greater reason,

There lie those

Who try to sleep.

They pull away,

React

With emotions–

Simply because

They’ve learned it’s useless

To fight.

They know that,

Unless they scream,

Not a soul

Will listen.

Despite their protests–

Both loud,

And silent–

They know

They will grow

Tired of reacting,

Tired of caring.

They know

They will cease

To exist inside–

As that is how

They are treated

Outside.
