It has been said that the only thing evil needs to succeed is for a good man to do nothing….

She wrote her heart out for weeks
tears between lines on a book of faces
she received so many likes
but no-one phoned her
our reached out into her pit of pain
no-one pulled her out

she said one day she is happy
the next she said she is leaving
a post a few day later on her page…

“she left with bottle of pills and a glass of wine”

Facebook is not bad, but sometimes we are all just faceless. This poem is not aimed at facebook but at society and how detached we have become…
