Beautiful Burden

Apocalypse

It’s the new thing

Movies, books, everywhere

We think we are safe

Hiding behind the screen

Between the pages

That’s not us

It’s not personal

So that means it’s ok

Delusion

How can we know the truth

When so many people are lying

And are so misinformed

Spreading information

Like wildfire

Twitter, Facebook

It’s everywhere and

It’s so easy

Fear

Fear of the unknown

If we don’t understand it,

We can deny it

Turn our faces away

From the destruction we cause

Truth

Our world is dying

And we all play a part

We are insignificant on our own

But we add up

A chain reaction

Starts with one push

There are many paths

But we must choose the truth

Power

It builds us up

And tears us apart

We all have power

So much it can overcome us

But we are strong

The right choice

Is often the hard choice

But the reward

Is infinite

And the feeling

Is beautiful

Power

It builds us up

And tears us apart

We all have power

So much it can overcome us

But we are strong

The right choice

Is often the hard choice

But the reward

Is infinite

And the feeling

Is beautiful

 

these lines blew my head away

this is a very powerful message about the role human beings need to play in this world

you always her about the world coming to an end, people justifying bad behavior

we need to do a better job in treating each other with decency and standing up to a cause 

great job and keep writing
