A Rant Worth Listening To - Poem by Jamal Brown

People respond faster to a lie than to the truth.
Shame. What have we, as humans become? What type
of world do we live in, where people don't want
to hear what's really real? Disney movies, and
Chick flicks have warped our reality. WAKE UP
PEOPLE! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
We don't have much time left. I'm soo sick and
tired of everyone saying ' Let's change the world!
Let's make it a better place for everyone! ' If you
still want to change the world, you only have a very
very very short time left. As a matter of fact, if you
want to change the world, for the better, start by
changing the person who looks back at you in the mirror.
How are you gonna change a whole planet, when you can't
even change yourself? And another thing is, if you fix
your attitude, or behavior, would the problem be solved?
I had to get it off of my chest.
