Favorite Quote:
“God, of your goodness, give me yourself; you are enough for me, and anything less that I could ask for would not do you full honour. And if I ask anything that is less, I shall always lack something, but in you alone I have everything”

It’s reeling.
The faces are screaming
The tears are streaming
The faithful stopped believing.
It’s dying.
The faces are lying
The tears are crying
The faithful stopped trying.
It’s sinking.
The faces are weeping
The tears are leaking
The faithful stopped leaping.
This is the state in which we live,
Big Brother said it wouldn’t happen again.
In this state, not one can win.
Our hearts have turned dark, obsessed.
Our hopes and dreams, oppressed.
Man, economics makes me depressed.

The author's comments:
I wrote this in AP Macroeconomics Class. (shhh dont tell!) Sometimes, when you are watching or reading the news, it seems so depressing. This is a poetic version of those feelings.
