Make Me Worth Saving – Author Hugh Dysart


Make me human,

with the stroke of a pen

Make me a memory,

with the wave of a hand

Make me worth saving


Canvas prisons, tent pole cities,

winter winds cold with suspicion

Stench of the frozen living,

purity of the frozen dead

Death awaits life’s white flag,

in soup lines under red crosses


The dead come and go,

the living stays behind

Hollow eyes weep empty promises,

into the snot rags of the rich

Prayers to the west,

make me worth saving


Mass exodus, penning the innocent,

populations caged on a map

Leaders proclaim victory,

on the corpse of innocence,

on the back of humanity

The dead come and go


The ignorance of so many,

to the words of so few

Satan smiles among the masses,

no one worth saving

Death acknowledges life’s surrender,

under white flags and red crosses


Make me human,

with a stroke of your pen

Make me worth saving
