“A FACELESS NUMBER
Am I just another faceless number?
Don’t you realize I have a soul too?
A family, just like you, a mind, just like you.
A heart – unlike you.
Doesn’t the sadness on my eyes show
That you’re doing wrong?
Aren’t my screams loud enough
For your soul to hear the pain,
The agony, that you cause me?
I put all my trust in you,
And while you
Stabbed, cut in my heart
I bled to death,
And with my last breath
The taste of my dead, burned flesh
Puts a smile on your twisted face.
When you killed my family you killed me
before you even stabbed the knife.
I was dead the moment you;
Prisoned me – captured me – left me in agony,
To serve you while I waited for the day
You’d pull the knife and leave me hanging
Till I fade away.
The emptiness in my eyes
Is a mirror of my soul;
Crushed – broken – hurt.
A face of a killer, a mind of a killer, a heartless killer,
“This fear is unbearable.
This pain is unbearable.”
Murder for no reason – for you, killer.
Thousands per second – for you, killer.
No harm have I ever done,
No life have I ever lived,
No chance to love the family that I had.
Another second, another thousand lives.
For you, killer.”
