What, my eyes dont see

What my eyes dont see...
  Anguishes me, to this harsh society.
As I look to the majestic sky
  I see darkness & destruction in its light.  

How can one, be truly happy??

As we embark on this so.called journey

those prostitutes, who lurk on the corner.
  Dont ignore them!! They are someone's 
Son or daughter.

Look beyound that young ladys eyes
  A rambunctious, little girl waits inside.

For a glimmer of care, in a faceless 
  Strangers lies.

As a mothers silent prayers,
  Cradles her daughters life.

And someones loving husband,
Creeps around tonight.

I Close my eyes, I dont want to see
  These villians, that surround me.

They smile politely in your face
As the back is turned, a frown takes shape.

A brutal dishonesty, of the worse kind.
Manipulation, so intriguing to the weak &  blind.

As the congregation prays, the preacher is delayed
  On his private jet, to save there day.

Confessions of each sin, bought to him
  As a collection plate, constantly circulates.
In such abundance, to make his life great.

While another waits, she couldnt attend church Today
  Her sons disease fatal, if a transplant doesnt take place

Another struggles with the morgage, 
  To bring the family forward.

While a homeless man on these streets,
  Rummages to find food to eat.

It is such a disgrace, the lack of love
  For the human race.

Regardless of personal riches, I can never envy.


They mirror selfish needs, 
  to compensate constant greed
Laying dormant in my dreams, 
  why my eyes dont want to see!!!
                Because it.
Will be the destruction of our
