Nowadays - Poem by Jeremy Williams

Keep those dreams to yourself
Put those thoughts back on that shelf
Don't express how you really feel
Even if those feelings are for real
People don't want to hear what's going on
That's the way real problems have begun
Who said a problem shared is a problem halved?
Must have been lucky with who crossed their path
In reality it doesn't work like that
Once the truth is out there
People decide they don't really care
So keep the truth to yourself
Use your knowledge and wisdom
It's your only real wealth
In the world today life's a competition
So get ahead and beat the others
Make sure you what's actually going on
It is nowadays the only way to stay strong
