Why do we feel empty inside? Why do we feel hollow inside? stripped of our emotions why do we feel numb inside when the emotions are raging anger and pain are roaring and all the feelings are screaming and squealing as hard as they can. Why do we feel hollow inside? When there is a tornado coming our way ready to rip us off and throw away when there is no place to hide And no moment left to regret. Why do we feel hollow inside? Why can't we feel the pain of his body lying naked in the cold hunger of his soul why can't we feel the thorn stuck in his foot? Why do we feel hollow inside? when the whole world is burning alive and there is only pain and strife where wombs are scratched clean and no moment is left serene. Why do we feel hollow inside? when the life ends in a single shot and meaning of a life is defined by a bullet when a senseless hand takes the life of a child. Why do we feel hollow inside? when the voyeur eyes and shameless hands take her pride away and we still want to cover her to keep the monster away when no hand can be trusted to bring back her pride. Why do we feel hollow inside? when the pain and anger crosses the border their homes are burnt and charred to bring the world to its order Where the life takes its first breath on a minefield Why do we still feel hollow inside Oh! why do we still feel hollow inside?
