Our Modern Reality


This is a money hungry nation and without it you can't succeed, 

People havin to suffer for things they need, 

Yet the priveleged prosper from their greed, 

I'm stuck in quicksand while the rich go full speed, 

My head's going in circles and spins, 

Where one wild thought ends, another grabs my mind and begins, 

Crazy's takin over and you know she's going to win, 

Confused by life and questions unanswered, 

The world's being taken over by a universal cancer,

Peace being held for ransom, 

Haunted by day to day massacres,

Gone is the sacred value of life,

Gone is the memory of the resaons we sacrifice,

The fear and respect have died,

Nothing left but cold pride, 

So many empty inside,

Is it all a lie..

How do we know, should we even try..

All we need is hope and faith to lead us to a better future I can see,

Feels like we've been deceived,

If good is supposed to be,

What about all the hate we seee,

Glorified in papers and on TV,

No one accountable for what they do,

How can that be true,

Law says anyone can get away with killing you,

Doesn't matter if you're a hundred or two,

And that leaves me feeling confused...
