Deaf.Ignorant.Blind

I saw him on the sideline, watching
Watching us jump and sing
His face was bleeding
His arms were tied
but we didn’t see him
Invisible blind

I saw him on the sideline, yelling
Yelling for attention
His voice was trembling
His words desperate
but we didn’t hear him
Deaf to our surroundings

I saw him on the sideline, wondering
Wondering why we clap and smile
His mind was wondering
His heart was aching
in absence of love
Aching violently

I saw him on the sideline, begging
Begging for mercy
His clothes filthy
His feet covered in dirt
but we wrinkled our noses
and turned our backs in sympathy
