Abomination In My Generation
All these thoughts got my mind at shake,
Why do we focus on what’s fake?
Kardashian-run materialistic society,
Going by a false propriety.
The other day someone asked me my biggest fear,
I said the future.
Nobody listens, they only hear.
See what they want, focus on desire..
Ignoring the fact that our Earth is on fire.
Shouting our names, screaming for help.
“Our waters are poisoned w plastic, don’t eat the kelp!”
How long is it going to take to realize?-
Must we reach the point of our own demise?
When we’re all buried in our trash,
Or our homes burn down in a flash-
Losing everything you ever thought was yours,
Is that when you understand home is at the shore.
Home is in the mountains,
On the grass~
Earth’s natural fountains.
Home is in the heart,
Home is what you had at the very start--
The day you came outta your mama,
No sense or comprehension of drama~
All you knew was light, and all you felt was love.
Cares as free as a soaring dove~~
Since when did life become a race?
Rather, a chase— to get to the top,
Clearing all out of your way like a mop.
Why do we think we’re better than one another?
We’re all birds who flutter
Back-n-forth-same way, in the same sky~
We all like to get high.
Everyone loves, everyone lies.
Don’t have to trust everyone, but allow them your compassion at the least,
We’re all eating from the same feast.
The feast of time, the way the universe aligns,
Fate they say, is the greatest star that shines.
