The 21st Century

Seems to me that the only thing that kids talk,
Are whose having sex, and who dresses best.
Why should we care, is it really a shock?
Kids are getting drugged, and their heads are a mess.

What happened to everyone's self respect?
And not getting lead to believe, their a reject.
I think people are putting on an act.
I believe they just wanna fit in, as a matter of fact.

But really, who wouldn't?
Its not like they shouldn't.
They'll judge you first chance they got.
Which, often times, can hurt a lot.

When will the stupidity end?
When will people have a hand to lend?
Whether someone would need you,
Or to even be polite if they displease you.

The world needs to change for a better tomorrow,
Or eventually, everyone will be living in sorrow.
Knowing in the back of their head,
This is the life they chose to have lead.

I think with guidance, we could make a change.
And even live our lives in a better range.
But we won't try, cause we're scared of what "they'll say"
So we'll keep making it worse, day by day.
