My eyes caught sight of their shadow
Coming towards me tall and short
I tried to ignore them
But time already left my side

For the shadows worked against time
Within a minute I found myself down and out
Tried to cry but no one could hear me out
No one came to help out

Lying helpless on the dusty road
Like a monument, everyone stood and looked
Scrutinized the poor me bruised and wounded

My soul was of no value
As no one offered a helping hand
To get me up from the burning sand
Instead they left me to die
Under the blazing sun

I was robbed
Not physically
My emotionally
Of my life and soul
