We live in a world where deceit is the only way
Where people can pay for something to…
Granted it has always been like this.
There has always been crime,
There has always been corruption.
The law’s word is taken with a grain of salt.
Catastrophe is everywhere but people choose
not to see it for life is easier if we don’t notice
someone has scars along their arms,
a family can barely survive,
unpunished rape destroys lives,
drugs control all.
Outward appearances are the things that matter.
A waxed record, great grades are good.
The expunged drug charges, cheating are
Even the religious prefer to spend money
on bettering the appearance of a church
than a charity to save lives.
It has become acceptable to curse the color
of an Iphone V instead of feeling blessed
to afford a fraction of it.
We live in a world where Nothing is going
to get better. It’s not.
