Can U Hear It?

by Ebonyavon

Can you hear it							
The cry of a baby born dead
The voices in a psychopath's head
A bullet capitalizing an untimely death
The stale smell of a homeless person's breath
The screams of a wife tormented every night
A child has contracted AIDS, the end of life
The silent blaze of a burning cross 
The quick steps of a woman being stalked
The snap shot of a naked child
An overdose of extra strength not mild
Rapist found innocent, case closed shut
The nine inch heels of a teenage slut
Can you hear it
Maybe you're just not listening…….
