ANOTHER MAN'S PAIN

Today
Lightly asleep underneath
The noisy smog ridden
overpass,
I feel the
pulse of indignation
And wear the cloth of injustice
That no one can see.
Today
It is man against woman
Color against race
Peace against war
I Smell the decay
Of the human spirit
As it crushes the soul,
A toe on a cigarette that's been
Tossed to the floor
Today
The burning of the tongue
Sears the heart that's still soft
And The rhyme to the reason
Has forged its own unbeaten path.
To follow is ignorant, hardly bliss
To stay is artificially sweet
Today
Wisdom travels behind
That desolate human spirit and
The chiseled disguise
of concern melts to gray
The new fashion of obscurity
Looks out from veiled eyes
Today
what's right in this world is gone
what's left behind us
is tattered and wrong
Tomorrow awakens a dawn
of a different day
In a world gone indifferent
To another man's pain
