We have unarmed teens getting killed.
We have soldiers dying everyday.
We have kids starving
We have homeless people in the cold
We have kids killing kids and showing no remorse.
Cancer killing more young people
Kids aren’t growing up
Babies getting rapped
Moms drugged up
Daddy’s missing or locked away.
People working 2-3 jobs to make ends meet
Rich getting richer and poor getting worse.
Where is the sympathy? Where is justice? Where is the drug programs? Where are the parents? Where are the cures? Where is the money?
Cities without water, where is it all going? Where are the shelters? Why are we still at war?
So many questions unanswered I’m starting to get annoyed.
I’m frustrated with this world, I’m mad I can’t do more. Why people with power don’t use it to uplift anymore?
People worried about awards, clothes, and cars. What happened the the leaders of the world? Where are the true stars?
Why so many sleepless nights? Why can’t I cry? So much pain our screams are so high. There’s a drought of change, someone kidnapped love. What does my child has to look forward to? Why not just give a hug? Why not just show compassion? Why keep creating distraction to hide the real actions?
What is going on?
Why are so many people hurting?
Why can’t we find happiness in a time that was fought for us to conquer?
Why am I asking? Why I want to know? Because I’m wondering if I should just give up life, and bury hope.
