Turning Off the News

You tore at my chest
With razor sharp claws
For I am an empath
A bleeding heart if you will
For days
Your stories haunt me
You only tell me the doom
Disseminate fear and tears
A thief hid behind words
You steal our hope
Replace it with malleable angst
A controlled narrative
To cause a fracas in the ranks
Keep us divided and weak
With false beliefs of the truth
And thus, I have turned you off
In the quiet there is peace
And I will still find out
What I need to know
