A Nation Of Inaction And Nameless Statistics

Another week
Another shooting

The madness never

Showing signs
Of slowing or stopping

While the names and faces
Of the victims 
Of the day
Fill our hearts 
With sorrow
They will become nothing

More than statistics
Faces with out names
We will forget

After the next  

Weekly tragedy
When the next victims
Become the same damn thing
And we end up
With even more

Statistics without 

Names or faces

We won't do anything
About either
We are a nation
Of protests
About the tragedy 
Of the moment
But of inaction

When it comes
To actually doing
Anything about it
We need to wake up
And realize 
What we are doing

Isn't working

And do about it
Before the statistics list
Once again starts growing
