Open Eyes

Location

I look around and see more phones 

Than books in the classroom.

I see people worrying about bets

When there is an eminent war.

 

I see thinking diminished 

And common sense thrown out of mind. 

I see apathy and hate

Where compassion once stood. 

 

I'd change one thing- that's all. 

I'd open the world's eyes, for,

I see a world beginning to crumble

and all other eyes are closed.
