Simple Thought. Poem by willow moon pearce

Simple Thought.

Rating: 5.0
 


We have the news and television to make us all feel uncomfortable
Scared and paranoid of our world
Thousands of children die worldwide and we try to tuck it away
Poverty stricken and homeless citizens of a great nation
Become a ' burden ', targets of our indignation.
Yet, we forget this tragedy
And root for the next unmanned mission to Mars.
Become so patriotic for this waste of money,
Oh Yeah, lets not forget the millions paid out for an unpopular war.
It's a war hated by millions.

But come the day when strangers stop and help you
Good friends come by for coffee
And the chat about that last book read
Waking up to a beautiful day
Is the essense of life
The highlight of the day
Without friends we are just a shell.
