141 – Blank

I saw her leave.

I saw the day she gave up.

I saw her getting weaker everyday.

I saw her loose all faith in us.

I saw the masses turn their backs on her.

I saw the world decry her name.

I saw her tears.

I saw her die.

I saw the fires raze the land.

I saw the cheers turn into dumbfounded silence.

I saw them all realize, too late.

I saw it happen.

I saw the world grind to a halt.

I saw their faces, staring blankly.

I saw them turn against each other.

I saw them pointing fingers.

I saw them hurling blame.

I saw them lost.

I saw them die.

I saw it all.

I saw,

But never raised my voice,

For her.
