these good people II

another blow
I can’t believe it
how dare you
how can you
when you see us
why can’t you trust
we never did wrong
never disobeyed
always parted in the dark
because you said so
she has always been good
and by other standarts
so have I
why can’t you trust
and leave us alone
accept the change
do you understand
how much all this hurts
can you comprehend
how much it takes
to smile at the table
how can I be friendly
when all you do is build
walls and fences
she’s not your property
and I’m not the enemy
why is it so hard
why does this have to be
again
and again..
