The World Is Turning And Burning - Poem by coty rutkowski

Here we are
this same ol' hell
trying to crawl up
out of this well
this world is a bad bad man
pushing me down
while I'm takin' a stand
smacking aside
while I'm holdin' out my hand
I'm makin' a buck
when I should be makin' a grand
they say I'm happy
that my tears don't fall down
the truth is I'm a liar
I just hide behind the mask of a clown
You believe in god
yeah you say he's real
you say he's all around us
all I see is hell
we have no control
of the hand we were delt
you'll never understand
the pain that I have felt
but if this world
is just a game
lets embrace the chaos
add some fire to these flame
my words they fall like kerosene
you know I'll never learn
so lets just sit back
and watch this world burn
they say heaven is there
above all this fire
I have no reason to believe
I say that they're all liars
now I lay here in this coffin
the darkest slumber I have slept
I cannot find solace
in my various attempts
you see me as closed minded
they say I'm pessimistic
like all i says a lie
but come on, I'm just realistic
you just stand up there
thinking that you're right
but hell is where you'll go
when death rolls in the night
six feet underground
the maggots eat and chew
you didn't go anywhere
god won't help you
so just be wrong
and believe in faith
hold your breath now son
and suffocate
you better put on a mask
because you're breathing in smoke
pray down on your knees
the hands of god will choke

This world has gone to hell as you all can see
God has gotten his bittersweet victory
