Where have you been in your travels through life?
Did you take the easy route and drive through it all?
Carefree and single with out a worry about a soul
Or did you walk a few miles on burning sands and through troubled lands
Barefoot and thirsty
Praying for salvation that will never come
To a lowly soul such as yourself
By the world at large
Crushed like the aluminum can under the feet of my peers
Shattered and dashed like ashes from the urn that contains the remnants from your pathetic soul
Simplistic emotions complex scenarios
Explain to me the reason for breeding future ignorance
For hating your fellow brother who is trying to make a living just like you
Carrying a generation on his back
Whip scars never disappeared
They became mental instead of physical
Self perceived power is but a myth unless actions are taken to make it better
See you only see part of the story unless you dig deep within and search for the truth
The truth so obvious to the naked eye
It’s piercing stare strikes your heart through your soul
Invading your thoughts
