Do you wonder how life is really like
Do you wonder whether what is right is really wrong
Not knowing that you are nothing more than an empty vessel

Being enslaved by the ones that you back up
The government sending numerous amounts of lifeless souls

To a war where both sides believes that they are right
To a battlefield where thousands of souls soon be deprived
Thousands dead and thousands crying

Such a life in which one lives by without denying
How such ignorance could not be ignored
How one perceives what they seem is right

How well the government did to control one's life
Not realizing at all of the ones they made cry.
Living in a life of total darkness and blackened souls
Lifeless zombies that people have become
All by the belief in what they think life is like
A life that is now nothing more than total darkness
A life not worth living without the chance of hope
Only despair falls on those that are living
Only the dark void will grasp what our lives wish to hold

    The truth hurts the Government that's why they choose to ignore us and play God, Nicely penned.

    Right you are. Why can't we ignore the ignorance?

    Amazingly deep Thomas; truths so many don't want to hear. It makes many angry to hear but it is my beliefs that keep me from this despair. Thank you for sharing these innermost thoughts.
