Help Me Understand

Oh my heart is puzzled and broken
I do not comprehend the why of what you do
Behaviour so highly unacceptable
It leaves gouges in my exasperated breath
Words so acidic and sour
They burn my belief in good human nature
For ones who are meant to be our protectors
You disintegrate the hope others have tried to forge
To disparage and tear down an adolescent
Speaks of the false egocentric power that you think you have
True strength lies in compassion and understanding
In spreading love and building promise and confidence
Not fear and domination
