Faces

 

Faces From Future Not

 

Haunt Our Memories

 

Their Names

 

Solemnly Read

 

Burn Deep At Hearing

 

They Come In Quiet Moments

 

Asking Have You Done All You Can

 

To Pay For Our Lost Futures

 

To Make It So

 

No One Dare

 

Do Such Foul Deed Again

 

Have You Paid The Price

 

Thrice Over

 

In Terror Purveyors Blood

 

For Each Time

 

Our Memory Has Brought Pain

 

For Each Questioning Child

 

Forever Hurt

 

For Each Soul-Mate Lost

 

For Each Future Not

 

They Just Keep Coming

 

Asking Such Simple Things

 

Why? Where? Who?

 

And Always

 

Has The Price Been Paid

 

So I May Rest
