It’s Sad

It’s sad when

Brother murders
Brother in cold blood
And there is no justice.

It’s sad when
Leaders cannot agree
When their people
Aren’t allowed free speech.

It’s sad that
The world is at war,
While people live
In fear instead of peace.

It’s sad when
We live in the shadows,
With no protection
And no privacy of our own.

What can we do?
When we have nothing
How we will live again?
When the damage is done

What can we do to change the world we live in?

Looking over his shoulder…
To see if she’s there…

The one he was kind to…
Whilst being unaware…

Of the feelings created…
Deep within her mind…

The beast he had stirred…
That was hidden behind…

Words of friendship…
And seemingly harmless fun…

But as things progressed…
He realised what he’d done…

By then it was too late…
There was no way to stop…

The fates conspiring…
As he forced her tears to drop…

With a humble explanation…
That outlined the mistake…

But his words were futile…
And contact he had to break…

To escape her madness…
Go back to real life…

To his family and friends…
And his oblivious wife…

But as days became weeks…
She refused to let go…

He belonged to her…
She’d let the world know…

Promises, lies and threats…
She stalked his every move…

Around every street corner…
Her love she tried to prove…

She begged and she pleaded…
Before she finally snapped…

Followed him home one night…
And violently attacked…

Thrusting the knife deep…
Into his vulnerable heart…

Forcing him to his knees…
And his soul to depart…

Releasing her puppet…
But she just didn’t care…

Calmly walking off…
Into the cold night air…

The man in the mirror…
Isn’t the best counsel for advice…

He may give it to you straight…
But also tell you evil lies…

Sitting in pure isolation…
His view distorted and perverse…

He sees all that you see…
From an alternate universe…

He has mischief in his soul…
And a twinkle in his eyes…

With no accountability…
He doesn’t live, but he survives…

Encourages you to do it…
And find your inner strength…

Points to which path to take…
Infects your mind’s wavelength…

Then he sits and watches…
While you make a fool of yourself…

Awaiting the next opportunity…
For you to validate himself…

As you sit in his presence…
Asking for guidance and advice…

And he stares back at you…
In mild and mock surprise…

He’s the dirty to your clean…
He’s the bad versus your good…

He would commit so much sin…
If he was free and if he could…

Instead he’s locked within the glass…
Imprisoned in your reflection…

And damned for all eternity…
A mirror image of imperfection…

The wrong to all that’s right…
The demon hiding in your soul…

The one you can’t admit to…
And the one you fight to control…

Because he’s the man in the mirror…
And if you listen, you’ll pay the price…

He’ll never give it to you straight…
But he will tell you evil lies…
