The Present World.May I be excused?The Present World. in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I don't like this world.
It's full of hate and violence.
I suppose thats just human nature.
Attacking the inferior for survival.
I'm used to the concept.
I just don't want to be contained anymore.
Some things are nice.
Like photographs and art.
Film and the retro media.
The modern times though,
Full of controlling manipulative crap.
Influencing girls as young as 7 to be skinnier.
Teachings of only appearance and not social capability.
Such an obsession with money.
A value we made up so we'd gain something more from getting rid of something.
But has now got the world spinning on it's axis.
Controlling how everyone lives.
Poverty & Wealth.
Death & Power.
Stuck & Free to do anything.
This world is a scam.
The Lost CauseI've never been good with words The Lost Cause in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I'm not a poet or a bard
I may not be the next Poe or Pip so
My words can just be ignored
Anger's a defence,
A shield for your pride
You're embarrassed for being so vulnerable
Having been taken for a ride
'Cause when you've cried all you can
All that's left is the hate
And though I used to despair
It's just easier to berate -
It's easier to be angry,
To be bitter and cold
Than admit you'd ever been hurt
By someone so self-involved
Who turned out so unworthy of your effort
And your time
Who treated you like nothing
And, of their friends, lost sight
I guess it's easy to call it love
When you're caught up in the passion
But when you constantly boast and complain
The patience wears thin
Acts so intimate and personal
Made cheap and meaningless by the stories
The friend I once knew is lost
And they left with such ease
Because your decisions don't just effect you
The consequences hurt others
And when you don't give any effort
Why should they even both
