In This Place - Poem by Charles Lara

Where night begins
and day falls
where love dies
and hate multiplies
where sanity jumps
and madness copulates
where faith stops believing
and cynicism thrives
where peace gets trampled
and war gets breast fed
where poverty grows
and opportunities fold
where youth shows its age
and old folks get stoned
where dreams sink to the bottom
and nightmares don’t sleep
Where lust wears cheap perfume
and lies become truth
Where the few become many
and the rest wait in line
to get out of this place
called life
