The Ambassador's Plea

By: Damien Zachary Lovria
Date of Completion: 03/29/18

Look within the mirror and ask yourself a simple question.
Is it okay with you that we are living in depression? 
A state of constant fear where it's okay to hide away. 
It's easier to stay in bed than face another day....

But sitting here before this screen as my vision slowly fades.
I cannot help but feel as though we're wasting life away. 
There's more to do than what we are yet we can live so peacefully. 
Perhaps its all because its hard to fight what you can never see. 
The worst of enemies I've fought are those inside of me.

I lost a friend now months ago to beasts we never see. 
And couldn't help but think that with him went a part of me. 
I get that money is a need within this world of corporate greed.
But also understand that we can fight it if we try.

There's no excuse to never try or sit in darkness wondering why our loved ones had to go and die all because the greedy monsters had a glimmer in their eye.
A twinkling orb so filled with green, envious they always need, more and more they take from me just as they take from you.
Perhaps it's time to wake up and realize what we must do... 

Unify and make a stand against the greedy grasping hand that crushes us within its clutches and drains the life from what it touches.

Walls will never stop the bombs.
And guns you grip with filthy palms.
Ignoring all the screaming moms who lost their child today. 
No longer will they watch them play, there's no more planning a birthday, yet with this knowledge we're okay?
There's something wrong with this I say.

Call me what you want and label me as who you will. 
But understand that I will never take another pill. 
I'm done pretending to be fine when trapped within this room. 
Of doom and gloom where darkness always murderously looms.

Like you I've struggled with it all, my body broken from a fall that left me curled up in a ball upon the bathroom floor. 
I screamed until my lungs gave out, until my whisper was my shout, with knife in hand without a doubt I'd find a way to make it out. 

But somehow I still live today, much better now than yesterday but something still incessantly tugs beneath my skin.
I've never left this battle and here still I'm trapped within.
My reflection shakes me to the core please tell me who I stand before as now I face a guarantor of all I locked away. 
This slippery slope of life's distress had no doubt hindered my progress
But spiraling now I do digress
I've put myself under arrest.

Now here within this prison cell we hate eachother more, yet chained together now we stand before the matadore.
He waits for us to make a move. Our final stand we stomp our hooves then charge into his countermove now curtain drop!


The dust begins to settle as the crowd waits silently. 
The dust my deep depression and the crowd; anxiety
I'm trembling now, my hands are numb. 
Shaking as they hold a gun that just before this line was done was pressed into my head. 

It's strange to think this poem to be my final words if I were dead. 

But fear it not for I do know that if I were to ever go I'd never get a chance to show you that we'll someday be okay.

Yes bruised we are, with battle scars, hands bleeding from those monkey bars we've held onto so long to never lose our innocence. 

We are hanging in the balance between life or certain death.
But never let them go I beg you, breathe another breath.

And while it pains me now to know I cannot help if you let go I want you all to understand I'll do my best to try. 
I've plenty more of tears to show, unafraid to cry, plenty more of strength to lift you up and let you fly. 
Now if we all just learn to help eachother through this mess.
Perhaps someday this wicked world of evil we can best. 
But never now alone you'll stand if you will trust in me. 
I'll change this world someday through words not violence, just you wait and see...
