What language is that you’re speaking?

The one where you don’t care
The one where you ignore the world
Just sit and play with your hair
Eating your dinner as people starve
Watching TV blinking at the gunshots
Completely unmoved
Completely unfazed
How do you do it?
Did it hurt too much to care?
Did you learn to stop?
Did you ever truly care at all?
About anything or anyone?
You don’t want to help
You don’t want to cry
It doesn’t bother you
When a hundred people die
It happens every day
