You can't look at yourself in the mirror anymore

without seeing failure written on your forehead.

You're at an all time low.

and all your feelings are starting to show. 

Everyone can see it,

but no one will try and heal it. 

You're slowly drowing, and you can see everyone around you breathing.

You're depressed.

If I could change one thing, I would try and change Society.

Society is cruel,

they don't care about anyone but themselves.

Society will break you down to your lowest low. 

They'll cut you with words, 

but they might as well be cutting you with knives..

Society doesn't know how much they're hurting you. 

It's time for that to change. 

If I could change one thing, I would try to change Society.

I would tell them the stories of the others.

How the others are slowly fading away.

They can't stand anymore because they've been cut too many times

by the knives.

I would tell Society the god awful truth behind their words, 

and how after each unthoughtful word that they thrash outwards 

digs deep into the other's souls.

Society is cruel. 

If I could change one thing, I would try and change Society.

Everyone deserves to feel important,

and if there is one thing that has changed in this world..

It's that nobody knows how important they are.

Society is not only bringing others down,

but themselves down too.

Because in the end we're all living in the same Society.

If I could change one thing, I would try and change Society..







Great poem. I have felt and have seen what society can do. It can tear you down into nothing without even a purpose. Unfortunately, that is the world now a days and it is only going to get worse and worse. The best thing to do is to stand strong and not to give in to the world's cruel ways. The best thing to do is to be the light among the masses that are dark. Somehow...someday someone will notice and be influenced by your actions and change themselves. From there, it will cause a chain reaction that will let that light grow and drown out the darkness in the masses makeing a somewhat better world to live in. Once again, great poem. Keep writing on my friend.
