Everyone is self-absorbed.

No one is observing

But as long as their self assured

Everyone is undeserving

Society is degrading

You should start observing

No one is aiding

Everything is breaking

The world is fading

Your kids are shaking

While you’re there yelling

Stop faking

Society is overwhelming

Children are dying

And you’re not helping

Society keeps lying

While the world is crumbling

Everyone stopped trying

Truthful, powerful and an interesting style... The half- rhymes and line endings are especially effective.


Thank you, that was my first time writing a poem in that format.
