"Listen"

Author: Aftertaste of a Razorblade

I just want someone to understand,

even if they don't agree.

I feel so confused

because none of this makes sense to me.

Please...

just listen, hear me out.

Someone, anyone.

I just want to know.

I want to find out.

But how can I know anything

when nobody wants me to?

Nobody's even willing to answer a single question.

So how can they blame me for being ignorant?

Why?

And you won't tell me.

When?

And you won't tell me.

How?

And you just say I'm too young to know.

But I want to.

I want to know.

Badly.

Someone, please...

I can't help but feel desperate

for knowledge, for a savior, for a real opinion.

"The lights are on,

and nobody's home."

Only because I was waiting for you

and you never showed up.

I wish I could honestly say I was

pro-war, or

anti-war, or

I'd just love to be something-war;

But

I'm not indifferent,

just utterly confused.
