Unfortunate Reality - Poem by Jessica Seesink

That’s what this is.
Sheer.. Madness..

People’s thoughts.
People’s jobs.
Just people in general.

The ego is the largest part of a person
Whether it’s noticeable or not.
Everyone is full of themselves
Despite the attempts to hide it.

They don’t admit to being wrong.
Isn’t it obvious that certain people should?

If you’re ruining other’s lives, and just don’t seem to care
How did you come to be in that position?

It’s clear to me,
That people don’t think.
Think before they speak,
Think before the act.
…Seems like people don’t think at all do they

Don’t think about their actions
Don’t think about the consequences
Nobody does
And it’s a damn shame

A shame to see our World this way
If you had a choice, what would you do?
Would you choose to grow up the way you have,
Or do you wish you could be somewhere else?

Somewhere where your colour doesn’t matter.
Somewhere where your beliefs wouldn’t get in the way.
Anywhere you would feel accepted.
A place where you would actually feel safe.

Safe inside and out
Not afraid to just be who you are.
Honesty, not always the best policy,
But shouldn’t be forgotten.
We’re on a downfall
Mentally and physically
Can you imagine how much wore it can become?

What if…
If it becomes that way
What will it be?
Just one thing…
It will be madness…
