With Time

He fought everyday for unity and peace.
People were not afraid to follow
wherever he lead, they were happy that
someone, anyone…brave enough, bold enough
would be willing to fight for a nation
divided, scattered into so many pieces
no one man could fraction back
together overnight,
but he did it with time and patience.

You Don’t Know

You don’t know what it’s like
to have your heart bleed out,
to be soaked in blood,
and swinging from a string.

You don’t know what it’s like
being scared to death,
looking around; searching for help
but the only help that comes
doesn’t understand your pain.
