Have you ever thought about what goes on in today's society?
Do you know what goes on half way across the world?
Do you even know what goes on in our own country?
Children are beat, raped, and starved everyday
People are fighting with each other to get the 'best' there is
Citizens throw garbage to the side of the road when there's a trash can just up the street
Wars are going on and people would come to us for protection
They'd come to America, thinking it's the promise land
But they live one day with our people and decide they'd rather go some place else
Americans are stupid, selfish, and they don't respect others for who they are
In school, if your different, you get pointed out and made fun of
I know that you've been on one of those sides at least once in your life
Whether on purpose or not, you've done it
And what came out of it?
Nothing but guilt
Guilt that you wished to have stood up for yourself
or guilt for pushing them down in the first place
I used to watch those TV shows and movies for people today
The ones that teach a lesson
And the older ones my parents would watch cause there was nothing else on to be seen
Those are today's R rated things
The things that today's children want to watch
How many people do you know have seen or heard of that show called 'The Walking Dead'?
Quite a few, right?
Well, sometimes I wish that that would happen
Not because I like to see gore or people killing each other or anything like that
But because then people would come together and need each other to survive
Sure there are still those who protect and those that stay inside where it's safe
But they still need each other to depend on
The people there know they have others like them that they can talk to and be friends with
If everything went back to normal, they wouldn't take things for granite
That's something I wish to happen because of today's idiots
I shouldn't have to do that
To wish for something horrible to happen for things to be better
Why can't people come together on their own?
Because they care about themselves
Why do people want more of something they can't have?
Because they care about themselves
Why are people selfish?
They only care about themselves
We need to come together to fight our problems
We need to gain trust from others for this fight
We need to make bonds with others for peace
But I guess it's just another wish of mine
I know that it will never happen
Mainly because I know that there is only dirt and mud wherever I go
It doesn't matter which side of the hill your on
Nothing is there
Just self promises and lies of others
We don't know who to trust
Do we even know what trust is?
I think I know
I think we all think we know
But tell a secret to someone or write it in your diary
It can and will, sooner or later, be told
That's what we're afraid of
To be exposed
So others can push us down for being different
For being who we are
Some peoples choice is to avoid this by keeping it to them self
But then it builds up inside of them
And they can't keep it hidden forever
But they don't want to tell
So as their last option
They dig a hole
And put the barrel to their head
Their family and friends morn for the decision the made
But they didn't think about their family
Only themselves and the words of others
This is why we can't have anything nice
This is why we don't trust
This is why nothing can be peaceful in our lives
We think of ourselves and the dark words of others
We only see the shadows
Never the sun
Why do we turn our backs to the good stuff in life?
Why can't we turn around so we don't listen to the whispers that tell us about evil?
Why can't we be nice to one another?
Why do we push down the weak instead of help build them up?
Why does evil rule over good?
Why don't we come together and stand as one to make our world a better place?
