There’s a hole in the world

I feel like someone should have told me
Someone should have known

There’s a hole in the world
And it reaches so far down
Into me
Into you

We should have been warned,
When we were forced into this world
We should have been warned
that there was a hole burrowing deep
into the darkest places
the darkest spaces

There’s a hole in the world
That no light can penetrate
Where it doesn’t matter that justice is supposed to be blind
because the rest of us are too

But not by choice
Never by choice

There’s a hole in the world and we’re all falling into it
Where the silence is more terrifying than the noise
and the noise is more terrifying than the silence

Where the air is thick with a choking fog
and the children will cry
and the children will die

There’s a hole in the world
Its people are breaking
and broken

There’s a hole in the world
there’s a hole
