The System


by Dillon Ollivierre Fri, Oct 21. 2011

Corruptive! Deceptive!

We’re living in a world where the poor continues to suffer
The rich continues to become richer
We’re living in a system that needs abolishing
A system that needs recycling
Crime and violence are on the rise like cost of living
Suffering escalating{{more}}

Poor people crying
Poverty victims dying
Cancer patients praying
When will world leaders put aside their differences and unite?
When will they join forces ? When will they end the fight?
When will they think as leaders rather than politicians ?
When will they live up to all realistic expectations ?

Nation against nation, war against terrorism !
Or is it a war for supremacy ?
Everyone wants to be in control, everyone wants to lead, no one wants to follow
Destruction is the path they pave, ill decisions create nothing but pain and sorrow

As corruptive as the system may be
We are our worst enemy
We undermine each other, fight against each other
We refuse to see each other happy, we refuse to be our brother’s keeper
We have become a nation of vampires, preying on each other

Refusing to be our brother’s keeper
Stop! People are crying
Constantly suffering

As you turn on the television you see devastation taking place in the world
You see pain on the faces of so many innocent boys and girls
You see the future of tomorrow
You see a challenging life with great sorrow
You see destruction, you see death

You see people living in regret
You see mental, physical and emotional scars
You see the end quickly approaching like speeding cars
How can our youths have hope when the world have gone mad ?
How can they survive in a world that’s heading for destruction, how can they smile when everything around them makes them sad ?
