Losing Faith and Works


Satans' wreaking havoc
on all the masses
losing faith, in all school classes
beginning to seem that GOD, is no longer available
desperation, despair, depicted on television cable

Just another modern day
mental destruction. coming my way
custodial arts, with a minor education
fulfilling needs, with healthy decisions

Plenty of pressure to get things done
a thousand things to do
yet, they want me to be a gopher
to fetch this and that
I agree, however at my own pace
how bout' that!

So don't push or pull me
as a puppet on a string
I'll work my space, thank you
forever
do my own thing

    Defying the pressures of what we presume we must be doing! Going to the basics of human needs! Voicing your own mind and comforming to no one!

    This is a wonderful piece.. to anyone not a sheep of the mordern materialistic world, to whom can see where society is self-distructing, to whom that see more of life then infront of them from that idiot box!

    I really enjoyed this one, amazing quality,

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
