Obsessions and vanities
False lovers, calamities
Misfortune and shame
Our world’s sinister game
The more you have the more you need,
Fixing your eyes on possessions and greed.
Stab your neighbor through their eye
So they are blinded by your lie.
Keep all busy and far from home
So children are left to roam alone,
Murdered by the age of eighteen
What do you expect when your world is creating machines?
Assembly lines are still in effect,
Just this time it’s your soul they require you to check,
Loyalty fades through each generation,
Yet we wonder why so many are filled with manipulation.
Take a pill, for Everything
As long as you perform, conform and bring
Take no time to share or care
Just as long as at 7am you are there.
Smiles are perceived as suspicion,
Our mouths are ammunition.
While each group gets worse
We embrace societies curse.
For intellect now rules
Yet, technology has created fools
Dependent on everything else
Except God and ourselves
From deep within
For this war is something I will win
The shallowness of daily faces
Leads my spirit into dry places,
From former foes,
For their webs were spun and I didn’t know,
Their empty hearts that cannot understand me,
Leads my soul to cry out to thee.
from this world.
