Victims Of The System

the greatest tragedy to reach man
which we didn't even understand
as a child i was wild
no guidance by my side
my greatest resource was my mind
we need focus
someone to show us
to get the best productivity
be all i could be
but the tragedy
was watching the tv
taking their vision
into my mental cerebrum
their lies and deception
they used music
to trick
i didnt understand it
but now i see
it so very clearly
we lost our way
many no longer say the day
they have gone away
six feet deep
and to those who'll never be free
like my friend Ali
lost in the street
we did meet
but the tragedy
was he had nobody
and ended up in jail
where he felt he should stay
for why would he kill for five dollars that day
its the greatest deception
still in our land
most dont ovastand
because u must be mentally free
in order to suceed.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
