No more inspirational stories
I can’t take it
The indomitable spirit
The missing limbs
Cancer's consumed child
Smiling, bald and brave

There under studio lights are
The clicking teeth of the
poignancy thieves
Selling misery's might
in HD pain until
Nothing is felt 

Where are the stories
of broken spirits?
Destroyed by tragedy
The ones that never recover
That’s who I’m praying for
The ones you’ll never see
Honored in the nightly news
For a ratings jubilee
