The Big Escape

Why Don't Other People See The Smoke And Mirrors

 Life can be a magicians greatest trick

Each day we are bombarded with thousands of ads trying to get our attention

Numerworse newspapers and the local t.v. stations do their best to  explain the latest news

I think they do a great disservice to society

When we are finished learning all there is to learn

To keep us current to what is happening today

We all know how important it is to know what affects each and everyone of us

I walk away empty

With a sick feeling in my stomach

Like that is all that is important

What happened to all the good in life

It is cut to talk about the bad

Once and awhile a good tid bit will make it's way through

Pressed by time many I am sure are cut out and over looked

Why can't they begin the news with good people and events

Then ending the news the same way

Let all the stuff in the middle be more like a filler

This is the life I live every day

Filled with what is good and not all life is bad

We are made to believe these things aren't so important

In time we are worn down by the barage of garbage that hits the air ways

I think it is another form of tabloid trash

We are bringing up our children into the same mess we have dealt with for years

Murder,drugs,crime,distruction on a large scale

Then parents shake their heads when children make the wrong choices

Isn't it time we lead by example

Haven't we sugar coated the news with endless violence and war long enough

After looking at the news I want to run away

To a different place and time

It is time we own up to what we are constanly doing

Infuencinng our children to be the worst of the worst

Instead of being the cream of the crop

Lets start now and turn the tables once again

In favor of life and the wonderful life we all want to live

Bravo my dear friend, however we must stay educated in the ways of the world, if we don't see the truth others more powerful bad people will control our lives, we much learn ways to protect ourselves which includes knowing the ugly truth, I feel like you but I must know to help save American and or wonder green planet Earth. Rate up love & peace darski
