You Never See a Bullet Come For You

Beer bottles broken on curbs. 
Politics. 
Lies meant to hurt. 

I see no good
coming of it. 

My baby's smile
His laugh. 

This good
I want to see more of. 

I wish to feel the thunder
and kiss the strikes
that befall our nation. 

I wish to heal the stars
and carry the fights
we face in our heads. 

I long to understand
the ways of
those who see past
what we never could.
