The Shadow of Indifference

You let me down
Flat, leveled, busted
By the rushing roadway
Bleeding
Going down slow
You let me down
Embarrassed, humiliated, belittled
In my huge mistake
Alone
Hugging my shaky knees
You let me down
Branded, labeled, stigmatized
On the walk of life
Indicted
Dodging long pointing fingers
You let me down
Gagged, shackled, tethered
To a hanging tree
Suspended
Death dancing jerkingly
You let me down
Empty, gaunt, starved
From the raging famine
Skeletal
Lying in debris
You let me down
Unnoticed, unappreciated, unloved
Within a careless family
Ignored
Wishing to be free
You let me down
Dismembered, discarded, swept
Between cracks of conformity
Buried
Knowing you are just like me
