Restless Reflection

As others turn blind eyes
To the pain that lives
I see

As others forget the whispers
Once shared in fear
I remember

As others use the cane
To prove a point
I leave

As others use cruel names
To feel superior
I hear

As others take advantage
Of all they can
I give

As others struggle with
A system against them
I watch

As others break their backs
To provide for all
I thank

As others go through motions
To get a handout
I work

As others laugh at all
They don't understand
I learn

As others stay the same
For years and years
I change
