"Two things are infinite: The universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the universe. –Albert Einstein.


Go ahead, sugarcoat your lies
Tell everyone, it’s all right
I want to know
What goes on in those heads?
And what makes them think
everyone’s blood runs red?
This is what we dread, this is what anyone with a mind to disobey, will see
Right straight through the haze and the fog, the truth and the fiction
You spin a web, not intricate,
Of dread, illusion of fear, mask what is real
Change what you say, to fit in a repertoire
Habitually, changed every day
Fight, tooth and nail, nasty words
Snarky and unkind
Why doesn’t everyone see, the kindness of
someone not outspoken as much?
Who stays in touch with the real world, with everything going down …
I want to know, when was victory declared?
Was the rest of the world not there?
I want to know
What are you going to do?

this is a good poem . everything is true. the lies of being okayy and holding things in . it can really mess up somebody emotionally and physically.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone!

And I agree, the last line should be rewritten, but it was kind of a spur-of the-moment-not-editing-while-typing piece, so obviously it has problems. Would have done me good to analyzed more thoroughly.

I really like this one.  The last line Im not in love with, because its a cliche I think.  maybe "is it what you wanted to do?" I dont know that i like that any better, and anyway its your poem.  But great job!

Ok, so like it but it does get cliche at parts like the last sentence, and the rhyming sounds forced
