For Troy!

by angryhippie

And here I stand,
My spirit shaken.
As another innocent,
Life was taken.
The justice system
Has failed again.
This wasn’t just,
It was revenge!

Humanity suffered at the hands of hate.
Trophy lives offered in the dark of night.
A nation blinded at 11:08…
More blood spilled to make things right.

And here I stand,
My tears loosed.
As his body’s buried
So goes the truth.
The justice system
Making me cringe.
Trading justice
For revenge!

Humanity suffered at the hands of hate.
Trophy lives offered in the dark of night.
A nation blinded at 11:08…
More blood spilled to make things right.

And here I stand,
In frustration,
Losing more faith
In this nation.
All meaning lost,
An empty call…
Pledging justice
For one and all!

Humanity suffered at the hands of hate.
Trophy lives offered in the dark of night.
A nation blinded at 11:08…
More blood spilled to make things right.

And here I stand,
My spirit shaken.
As another innocent,
Life was taken.
