I Will Stand by Cody Roecker (Poetry by Me #1)

My head throbs
Because of the cruelties
That are evident in my country

My eyes burn
Because of the hardships
That people in my country face

My ears bleed
Because of the cries that
I hear in the distance

My legs shake
Because  I feel weak
Due to the death all around me

My arms break
Because I try to save
All of the lives that matter

My heart shatters
Because they aren't punished
For the brutality or the murder

My resolve strengthens
Because I won't stop
Until justice is served
Or the doors of death welcome me
