So You Think I'M Nuts? - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

I'm use to being looked at as nut, but not for my political beliefs.
Its strange to stand in a lake with no water.
An unnatural position of posture.
But it doesn't change my firm belief that the poor will suffer at both the hands of democrats and republicans.
I feel isolated, and that is how they want me to feel.
All alone, just shut up and die quietly.
But I can't and I won't.
This is important, more important then anything I've wrote about in my entire life.
Millions of peoples lives are at stake and they don't realise it or they don't care.
I don't know which is worse, ignorance or indifference.
The belief speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil, then there is no evil.
A figment of my imagination I wish you were right.
I wish to believe in fairy tales.
But it doesn't sit right with my conscience.
I can't live a lie, with so much exposure of the truth these days.
Flaws are but a pigment of skin.
Opinions varying within.
A shadow watches me in loneliness, and asks me I haven't moved on.
I speak of my responsibilities that it can't comprehend.
In another life maybe I should have been a monk, because our virtues are very similar with the one exception I'm not thus I have to fight for my beliefs.
There is no harmony in what's going on around me.
All I see is this devious lust for chaos.
Like rain drops problems keep falling.
And nobody is even close to coming to the right solution.
We rather wage war, destroy the earth, become leader of the world, and get rich in the process.
I pray I live long enough to see this change.
I pray I don't see a civil war.
There is enough disagreements and civil unrest it could very well happen in my life time.
It is better that it is the road not taken.
Let me be dis-proved, make a valid argument, and just maybe all can be forgotten.
When the apple falls how long is it before it becomes rotten?
Lets makes a harvest, before this happens.
Let it be honest and true.
I know that is very hard to do.
