Creative Genocide

Location

Children swallowing pills 
Is more than a modern day trend
It's a death sentence
Always the beginning to an end

They cover their dreams and aspirations
With half-hearted expectations

Thinking one day if they get the grade
They'll be looked at with more respect 
Preferring it over self pride
Because nowadays what does that beget?

What do you achieve with dreams
If they don't allow you to survive
And if your dreams don't allow such
Presented then is the question: why are you alive?

If we continue to tell our children
That what they seek is wrong
They will spend their lives believing 
They are without a place to belong 

To rob a child of dreams is murder of
The person they have within
And here we have the next batch of students-
Let the genocide begin.
