I get fed up with people moaning...
 



From an early age 

I have witnessed people lose hope 

Silently watched them 

From the sidelines. 

~ 

Now I am on a new stage 

Where I can help those losing hope 

And invigorate them, 

Raising them to a revival of old stars' shines. 

~ 

When I share with them my craze 

The darkness in their eyes cries out for hope 

Yet they still digress from change 

Refusing to acknowledge what must be done. 

~ 

At this point I lose all trace of structure 

Save my four lines of verse 

And grow angry at these people, 

Who moan but never attempt change. 

~ 

For decades there has been no change 

No difference in life except technology 

I can't even begin to imagine, 

Why these people accept the way they are forced to live. 

~ 

Why the hell don't we try some change? 

I shout at everyone I talk to 

Because I just can't accept, 

And then I realise... 

~ 

I am losing my own hope 

When for year upon year 

I see people despair 

As we all get sucked into the world 

And structure sets in our lives 

I can't help but ask 

Do we really work to live? 

Or is it the truth that we live to work? 

Cos' I'm losing my hope... slowly it is dimming... fading... 

~ |||  Don't lose your own hope!!!  Do something with your life!!!  |||
