A Generation Disappointed

A generation

disappointed

looking for

someone 

to

blame

torches lit

fear

fanning the flames

hatred woven

within the

lies

flying past

you

be careful

not to breath them in

Because you see

It wasn’t me

It wasn’t you

It wasn’t them

We came here

together

we cannot

leave

alone

All consuming Fear

Deep inside

In the depths of your soul

It waits

patiently

to consume you

Are you ready?

I am fighting back

are you?

I will not let the fear win

not today

Fear is Powerful and

STRONG

if you are not careful

it will change you

so slowly

you won’t even feel it

until one day

you are one of them

on tv

warning of the end of all that we hold dear

because you chose to

let

fear

in

 

 

 

 

 

 

Misunderstanding

You’ve never met me

Yet the thought of me fills you with hate

You are not perfect

Yet you want me to be

You bend the rules to fit your whims

Yet you hold firm the rules for me

You will never understand love

Yet I will always love you

You wish me harm

Yet I wish you peace and understanding

At the end neither you nor I will exist

Only what we taught others lives on

Are you leaving love?

Are you leaving compassion?

Are you leaving fear?

Are you leaving hate?
