Unjust World And Breaking Promises - Poem by Aplier Hao

Maybe I'm too strong
Or maybe just weak
I know right and wrong
It's balance I seek

Searching for the truth
The explanation
This search ends up moot
In aggravation

Cause what's real lies in tatters
It's just about what you see
Perception's all that matters
In this screwed up society

No order
No fairness
No retribution
No equality
No justice

Just pain
Just violence
Just destruction
Just chaos
Just lies

In this world that I despise
There's no reason to have pride
It's all filled with blind eyes
To the suffering worldwide

But when one steps out to care
He's treated with disgust
For such people are quite rare
In this world of power lust

With most people
One thing is key
For their own good
They act with glee

So when he tries
To help people
He get's called weird
Out of control

Of course that's not
Why I write this
It's to discuss
That last promise

I thought I could
Just stay away
But it's too hard
I find I sway

Like gravity
I still return
Despite the pain
And all the burn

I dont know why
It calls to me
When I must fight
To just be free

I know I said
It would all end
But with my heart
Those words contend

But I promised
I must abstain
Unless released
Those words remain

Let me be clear
I hope for naught
This is a vent
It's all I got

Again thank you
For everything
And I'm sorry
For pain I bring
