THE STORM

I woke up this morning

Hearing noises I've never heard before

I went to check on my mother

She told me to run away, don't look back anymore

I guess this is what she meant

With "truth is stranger than fiction"

What's for sure is just the greed of some

Guy in a shirt and tie for more black gold

 

I didn't know I was already doomed

By the place where I was born

Fate, god and the UN watching me through a crystal ball

Where social media sadists judge my truth

 

All these politicians telling me what to feel and think

A world full of experts on classifying things

Media influencing my opinion (Depending on who pays them more)

How many images of bombed-out kids do we need?

 

STOP!

Stop pretending that you care

Less Facebook discussions and more cooperation is what we need

How many of us are helping instead of criticising?

 

I didn't know I was already doomed

By the place where I was born

Fate, god and the UN watching me through a crystal ball

Where social media sadists judge my truth

 

When will we finally learn?

When will we finally learn?

 

When will we finally learn...

That together it's easier to prevail?

When will we finally learn...

That the real war is against our innerselves?

 

Become a better person, study harder,

Forgive yourself and learn from your own mistakes

But don't blame others for your lack of discipline

There is no greater enemy than yourself

 

STOP
