Harsher reality


There comes a time when we all hold a responsibility

For what the world is and what it could be

But we often get trapped in our own reality

Concerned only with the well-being of our families

We can't spare a little of our time or thought

Because sooner or later we're bound to get caught, by guit, by empathy, by a greater reality

We might feel too much of what they always do

We might learn too much about the hidden truth

So we ignore it and pretend to want to help

In the end when it comes to our responsibility,we fail
