Another Face In the Crowd

Print Save Become a Fan
To others, I'm just a statistic
Another person they can pass by and forget,
But if they took the time to know me
It'd be something they wouldn't regret.
Even though I'm young, I'm not blind
And my eyes have seen many various scenes,
Scenes of horror and upset that cloud my vision
Scenes of happiness and things so serene.
I've seen racial discrimination on the streets
I've seen hatred burning like a vicious fire,
I've seen favouritism ruin people's lifes
I've seen others hurt just for one's desire.
I've watched things I wasn't supposed to
Because I'm thought to be too young to understand,
But they don't know I already understand
The cruel and vicious antics of each single man.
Even though I haven't got a degree, I still know
My mind knows so much about man and life alone,
That it would shock most people down to the core
And leave them thinking of actions of their own.
I know that to some gold is everything
And they would kill to get their hands of a piece,
I know to some their emotions are cloaked
In brutal attacks that are their only release.
I know that some people are so low in self esteem
That they have to decrease others to boost their own,
I know that most people are simply models
And they cannot think of ideas that are their's alone.
I may just be a child to everyone else
That should just be seen and not heard instead,
But if you only know the things I conceal
That I keep safe in my heart and my head.
Nobody is just a face in the crowd
We all have stories to tell and feelings to portray,
We all are living wonders with minds to share
We all are special in our own little way.
