Life is filled with fear and aggression
no one stands up for themselves,
no one shows passion
a Facebook filter is just not enough
in times like this – in times that get rough.
All of it is so perverted, seems like just a game
playing hide and seek trying
to guess given charades.
How long will we wait until we can feel safe?
How long will we cry and how long could it be
until there is a glimpse of light, until we’re able to see
that the hate we tolerate and that brings us down
will not change while we hide out or remain afraid.
Nations agree to disagree
no one knows a solution
showing them what they showed us
be yet another desperate distribution?
I feel like sheep not knowing anything
feeling love hate curiosity at the same time
who am I to judge or discuss
we are left with little bits
from the media trying to guess the hints.[share]
