Is is nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which was brought upon me...
Lamentations 1:12 (RSV)

Can I still feel anymore?
I'm exposed to everyday hate, pain, blood, and gore...

Can I still cry
for those who are hurting?
Can I still fight
for those who are defenseless?
Can I still stand
for all I've once believed was right?

Or I'll just stand here,
my lips curving into
a sarcastic smile,
"I've seen all of those before;
now, they don't really affect me..."?

Where was
the love,
the compassion
I used to sing about?

Can I still feel anymore?

(Help me have
a heart
