I've seen victims of cruelty,
human or circumstance,
innocents attacked,
some killed,
some crippled,
and some just go numb.
You've seen them too,
so many you can't keep count.
Don't be depressed,
too many are suffering already.
Take care of yourself,
and those you can,
as the days grow dark,
as the days grow dark.
