|"Words That Fall on the Deaf Ears of Society"
The poetry held by my soul for ages
Now bleeds out onto these pages...
Defying society, defying its ways--
The words fall like hourglass sand-- numbering my days...
Falling... falling on deaf ears
Because everyone’s too blind to hear.
Brains washed by a flood of lies--
Allowing their lives to become their demise.
But I refuse... refuse to succumb
To being a pawn born deaf, blind and dumb...
A fool with a head residing in clouds
And all but severed and lost in the crowd.
Who needs time? Why live by the hour?
By a clock are all our souls devoured.
If the clock would hold the hour for me,
We’d limit not and live in eternity.
These moments that take our breath away
become lost in the deadlines of our day.
There’s no time now for simple pleasures...
No time to discover all the REAL treasures.
If only there were no time... no time at all...
But Time isn’t all our worries,
For in the midst of all our hurry
We spend time to spend a dollar,
Again caring less what the real treasures are.
Tis costly to spend priceless moments on a bill,
Yet avarice determines and bends our will.
If you cost some lives, you can spare your own
If for wealth and fortune you are known.
How can you buy lives if they’re priceless?
Society has found a way, I guess.
We base a person’s status on a single aspect
Then from our labels know what to "expect".
Judgment never is passed fairly...
We scoff at those we know just barely.
With sincerity I write these words
In hopes that they’ll, one day, be heard...
The ways of society are ways I despise...
Running on time, money and lies.
