Hundreds of thousands of miles away,
Screaming, gun fire,
Crimson red blood, ruined lives,
Thrown away,
Because people are to selfish
To arrogant,
To blind,
To self-centered.
People are so stupid
Because they don’t realize,
That it’s not worth it,
Wasting and ruining
Millions of lives,
Just to have their name in a book,
To be the richest person,
To have to biggest house,
The fanciest car,
The name that everyone knows.
Just to have the book their name was in burned,
Ruined, forgotten, mistreated,
Just like they mistreated valuable and innocent lives.
Just to have that money be spent and passed down and given away.
Just to have that car ruined in an accident, keyed or slashed tires,
Bad transmission, and eventually worthless.
Just to have their name forgotten
When everyone that knew the name has finally died
Or realized that there was no point in remembering that person,
That caused the world so much pain and hardship.
There’s no reason to make people’s lives
Worse than they have to be
Just so that they have their moment of glory.
Because that moment of glory will end
Just like the lives of everyone that suffered to make that moment of glory come true.
Just like the life of the person the moment of glory happened to.
Just like the lives of every witness of that glory will end.
