The moment nothing mattered

The moment nothing mattered

A Poem by Lingering Soul

When roofs fell down
Creating silent seconds 

Of a shelter losing its meaning
Through slow ticks of time

When a bullet shot 
Only broke the sound of a prayer at dawn

When girls gather bread 
While a world of tables went down

When a child struggled
Kicking out the million dollar basinett 

When a country lost sovereignty 
For another expansion of delusional protection

While women live in fear
Giving rights to those who sold love for a penny

When toys tore
While tanks roared

The bottles that spun 
Finding no truth to our dares

Heartbreak hotels built
Replacing the love story

Thats the moment nothing mattered anymore

All things we could have had
but never would

But it does matter! Now, then was the time that you must gather all the pieces and put the whole thing back together again.

They will never be if we give up. The naysayers are always there. We must shut them out of our thinking. Care and cherish all those that we love and pretend that all the hurts were for yesterday and that today and tomorrow the brightest sun will shine.
