Too Little To Late

Todays society chooses to run on greed!
Few people actually want to see others succeed.
Some people would rather choose to hurt the people that love them,
as long as in the end they'll be above them!
For some people its easy to hit someone right in the head.
So they can rob them to get money and not work instead.
Predators continue to be on the rise, 
and ignore whom they hurt as they block out their cries!
Our families are torn by actions we've taken,
even if it's hear say and one was mistaken.
There are few people out there that can actually be trusted,
if we truly knew what some people did we'd all be disgusted.
When will society as a whole choose to realize,
that it's time for us all to open our eyes?
It's time we all rise up together,to make a change for the better!
Because little do we all know its pretty much right now or not ever!

Nicely expressed angst Melissa. Your words are all very true and very sad because greed does rule the land and the predators are every where. Indeed, we all need to open our eyes and see and try to make a difference.
