Compassion vs. Commodity

by SilverAngelFire

Age Group: Adult



Compassion vs. Commodity

I wanna cry but I think if I did I’d never stop
This pain searing through my veins unnatural and unearthly
Anger, frustration, sadness
Who are we to barter another's freedom
Are we so vain
Hearts cannot be bought and sold
Memories are invaluable
Or are they
Compassion vs. Commodity
Memorabilia vs. marketing tool
Reliving it over and over for what
Sometimes what we used to be is no longer who we are now
Maybe it’s all we’ve ever dreamed
To be free
To not be molded and shaped to another’s ideal
To retire to sanity
Held close by nothing more than family and friends
There is no happy medium so it seems
I have to find the way out of this but I am at a loss
I have been silenced by my own doing
I think this is what I meant some years ago
Why the emotion raged so abundantly
I just couldn’t see it
And it is now that I am forced to sit and stare
To witness this beautiful soul suffer as I did before
The very core of me is shaking
He does not want it, not anymore, not ever
Let it go, please just let it go
I imagine there’ll be no stopping it
Such time and energy wasted on the thought of those precious cash transactions
Instead of cleaning up the messes trailing behind
Now that would have been something special
And it were all not bad enough
After all these years I found the one thing I had been so thoroughly protected from
Every horrific detail now scored into my mind with unsightly images
I wish with all my heart someone could come change the locks of my mind
Give it a good scrubbing
Though I don’t think it would ever be gone
