Do You See Him?

Do you see Him in that child
The one with defiant eyes
Who refuses to conform
To the rules that you devise

Do you see Him in that man
Who will give up all and strive
To reach his destination
His agenda, taking lives

Do you see Him in that girl
Who’s been forced to live in lies
Who pretends that there’s no pain
In providing what he buys

Do you see Him in that place
Abandoned to those despised
Where hopelessness builds on hate
With no one to heed the cries

Do you see Him in that heart
That’s been crushed within a vise
‘Til it doesn’t even know
That there’s love trapped deep inside
