Imagination - Poem by Ian Zeller

A black sky with white clouds
close your eyes try to lose
your self

Questions are still not answered
The government is still fucked up
The president still bombs a foreign
country with a name you still cant pronounce

Religion is still the reason for war
people still wander streets looking
for a reason with signs of despair

Same save the children fund on tv
asks for money and death and destruction
still replayed for amusement

Now filling the streets white smoke
of burning buildings and a certain
calm but out of control crowd of signs
of despair and Why? revolutions of

History is yet repeated again
not death of civil war but almost
a horror story of everyone dieing in
the end except the man and women

Distracting lights of bill boards burned
down 'Just do it'

Corporations not in take over but
in self destruction of lies and
assasination 'We love to make you smile'

I am no leader
what to lead a world which you
could never change
'World piece'

People inspired for the reality
of the world
no one picture would explain
no one word
would change the world

Is this hell?
but a new life
Slowly I open the door
to my loved ones

Not knowing the fate
I take the knife...
put it away
One kill today
is not my want
My want is to
Life lives another day

the sunset creating a
almost beautiful sight
smoke filling the air
people in the streets
what a sight

The spider spins its
weve for its prey
Broken black chards
of glass can not
stop the walk

my knees give
