A Lucid Moment
Is it difficult to request a simple lucid moment?
All the treachery and deceit shocking my existence
Filled with bewilderment and disgust, I can only lament
The innocence and simplicity of a smothered soul
Finally, I understand there are things beyond my control
As optimism drains gradually from my heart and mind,
I rant, cry, and resent the world of pretense and personal gain
Is it not humanely possible to act as humans anymore?
I finally understand: it is beyond my control
I can only accept and pray for the human touch to soar
