A Lucid Moment

Written by: Dima N.

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 
Once again…
