What a world we live in today.
Lies and corruption at every turn,
Trust and compassion are lost.
Kindness and love battle
Greed and hate, while
Peace fights bloodlust…
And loses.

What a world we live in today.
Where laziness can’t be motivated,
And ignorance rules supreme.
Where theories abound,
But truth can’t be found.
Life moves so quickly
We miss the best parts.

What will we do with this world of ours?
No use trusting the adults,
It’s too late for them.
They’ll help us for sure,
But the world’s on our shoulders now.

Written 4/23/09 - Couldn’t fall asleep one night, so I got up and wrote this and “Take Charge,” which was originally the second part of this one, but I like them separate better

it is okay, thatis the way that things get figured out. you are not the one that has to slow down. we are just in a good place now, and i think we can stay here. we dont' need to go much futher. we can just keep, getting to know each other more and more and have more fun times like last sat.
