As badly as I want to reach for the stars, I am constantly
pulled down by gravity.
One world we share yet we operate like a dysfunctional family.
I've been patient with you but can no longer contain my sanity.
Where have we gone?
When criminals are committing a crime instead we'd rather flick our cell phones on.
We care more about our views and becoming viral, than a fellow human beings survival.
We'd rather capture clear footage than be a strong force that can stand together, end,
and rebuke this.
Our perception of beauty is a look someone paid a million dollars to achieve.
Cosmetic surgery is on the rise while suicide rates continue to take a dive.
We want to be this, we want to be that, society has got us pressured.
To live up to high expectations without rulers; one that cannot be measured.
I once remember when we could discipline our children,
without having an audience clapping, broadcasting, and onlooking.
It's like we need a crowds approval for each and every step we take,
Is that what the world has become? Is massive destruction of purity what
we choose to procreate?
You've left my heart cracked , in shock, and in utter despair.
How ugly you are, no amount of words could have made me prepare.
For what life is and continues to be.
A world filled with billions of people but still is one which lies empty.
Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble.
