Overwhelmed

Written by: Richard Lamoureux

Now with mass media
I can see over there
So many disasters
The World now can share

Numbing our senses
With sensory overload
Hunger and pestilence 
I see bombs explode

For me to stay sane
I have to ignore
When it comes to news
it's not good anymore

I do my best to help
Over there and here
Will aid reach them
Is my underlying fear

A drop in a bucket
I can't give enough
Perhaps I can give
A bit more of my stuff

How can I be happy
Live a life without care
When I'm filled with knowledge 
Of others in despair
