A Triple Dose Of Righteousness - Righteousness Not Sought, Try To Forget, and Speak Out - 3 Original Poems
Righteousness Not Sought by Christopher Dapo
You all pay to play to pay
Never for a better day
Fearing steering your lives in a better way
Avoiding yesterday and tomorrow for your day-to-day
Wasting your cares away
Just succumbing to thumbing for your two weeks pay
Like there's no tomorrow
Nowadays the fight for tomorrow is never fought
You live for yourselves unless you're bought
Allowing your misconceptions to run wrought
As your deceivers run your lives to rot
And in all this time
Even with a dime
That I want not
Nay even forever it seems
Our righteousness is not sought.
Should you look for us now?
Or wait until we're forgot?
By Christopher Dapo
Try To Forget by S.
With all this senselessness
It's hard to salvage any innocence
But why should you care less?
You have your own problems I guess
I can only guess why you turn away
Why everyone else's misery and misfortune becomes your sunny day
I hope you'll see what you've done
Before this ever omnipresent darkness blots out the sun
If life has become a battlefield then who has won?
It's a game we're playing
And a high price we're paying
And the resulting damage has only begun
Will you think twice
Before you roll the dice?
We're all on thin ice
So don't you dare run
This world's going down the toilet
But you don't give a sh*t
I know you've worked hard
So buy a brand new car
And try to forget.
Speak Out by S.
Corruption is what they call it
All our rights get violated
While persons on high line their wallet
All our jobs are overseas
Making of us an impoverished country
The poor are considered an impediment
By those who don't have to worry
If they can pay the rent
Crime has escalated as well as moral degeneracy
People no longer feel they have to care
And I see it everywhere
Is this how we thank our forefathers for making us free?
Freedom of speech
Freedom of choice
If we all speak out together
Together we have a bigger voice.
