Trying to say something positive

I am trying to say something positive.

I am desperate to say something positive.

I’ve been struggling to say something positive.

But I’d better keep quiet instead.

 

The political systems still failing

to do good, not even the best.

If not bragging or nagging, everyone’s complaining,

like most people are constantly in PMS.

 

We collect bottle caps to imagine

we are helping sick children to heal,

while our taxes are still being taken

to let millionaires do their false business deals.

 

We are wasting our time giving votes,

to have our chosen leaders replaced.

We are paying for living more than it’s worth

waiting ages for salary raise.

Do not laze, keep the pace!

 

We feel forced to take sides when it’s clear

that what all of us want is just peace.

We are hammering through an opponent or two

just to prove we are not on our knees.

 

Hope that it’s not just me, but it’s so sad to see

just how high is the pace at which the human race

robs humanity out of it’s kin

by beliefs, citizenships and skin.

So sad it is so easy to make people hate

and so hard to unite before it is too late.

 

21th century, we’re still medieval

looking for enemies, demons and evil.

Looking for remedies for peace of mind,

looking so desperately for something to find –

conspiracy theories! Let them freaking thrive,

while our common future is rotting inside…

It’s a shitshow.

I’d rather go blind.

I’m so sick of it I’m losing my mind.

 

And behind –

you still have the same figures,

utterly known by lawforce and people.

Doing the same shit again and again,

pointing a finger to someone to blame.

 

It’s so lame

I’m surprised that it’s working.

But if it does, it means we are the culprit.

Being easily brainwashed and manipulated

we’re just keeping our system of living errated.

 

I would love to end that with a wholesome advise,

but it’s useless to ask to be wise

or just nice?

 

Just try giving some more to your kids than you had,

hope that’s going to have at least some effect.

 

I am trying to say something positive.

I am desperate to say something positive.

I’ve been struggling to say something positive.

But I’d better keep quiet instead.
