Open your eyes

The anger in the world is so overwhelming  
My eye's are so open and there is no use pretending 
That we're forced fed the bad, and now evil's prevailing 
It makes me assume that this world is soon ending 
Please open your eyes, heart, and your ears. 
The media is trying to over flood us with fear 
Fears like a poison that now runs through your veins 
When we live in fear nothings attained  
Rip fear out your minds and so much is gained 
Then they'll fear us when this world is retained

    indeed many have a veil over their eyes,that must be lifted to give vision, May the Lord,bless,comfort,and direct your path day by day
