Heartless (Dedicated to Yue Yue)

I just saw the heartless video of a little girl wondering in the streets and being run over by a large van not only once but twice, second time not accidently. I am dumbfounded how much we have grown as a society. I can’t believe people just walked by her body and pretended to not see. I’m sorry Yue Yue that we have failed you, and I will forever remember you. My prayers go out to you and your family.

Heartless

It saddens me to see
Society endless corruption
A little girl hit
And nothing is done to save her in her dying pit
How can a human drive over her body?
Over and over to such a degree

What have we turned into?
How heartless can we be?
To not care and destroy the breath of innocents
How can a car just hit and run and run again
Over the innocent broken girl
What have we turned into?
Is this the defining moment of society
Where greed and colored papers have come to conquer
The breathing lungs and beating hearts

How cruel has this world made us?
To not look twice at a bleeding child
Left to bleed its blood through

The fake beauty queens
And cement covered faces
Are worshiped and praised
But innocents is titled weed
And left to bleed
On street full of passenger feet

Oh how mighty have we come to be?
To tell ourselves its ok to not care as if we don’t see
As if her eyes are not screaming in pain
As if she is not made of what we are
As if we will not fall
As long as we pretend we do not see it, at all.

Yes it is quite devastating Steven, she was hit twice and 18 passangers passed by until one decided to move her body from the busy streets. I couldn't phantom how a people passed by saw her in a pool of blood looked and pretended to not see her. They just walked around her body, this broke my heart.
