Inspired by Face Down by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and I Bleed by Halestorm

"A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect..." -Face Down by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus.

As you yell at me

another man looks on

and as you push and shove

a woman watches 

and as you hit me

neither does anything,

but as soon as I'm down on 

the ground and obviously hurt

there is someone there-

someone other than the two watching on

and suddenly there are a dozen people

and they are all around me

and they are helping me and

telling you to get lost, to leave me alone

and that karma will catch up with you.

I'm bleeding, and have broken bones,

but have been saved by one guy
