Where have our days gone,
And what have our manners become?
If our parents could only see,
Would they even recognize their daughter on son,
Would they believe that this is what we've done,
That this is what's become of their world?
Something once so clean and beautiful
We have beaten and burnt, reduced it to
This cynical, self-centered place we see.
Even in my short days alive I'm in shock and disbelief
At all the changes and atrocity of the commons.
Who are these people and what have they done with humanity?
Has kindness for the sake that its right up and gone,
And how have we let hate become this much of a pandemic?
This has gone on too long.
We must find the vaccine to this malaise
Despite it being right inside.
We each must bring it out in ourselves,
But once we do I find it to be quite infectious.
We only need to give it time to breathe,
Then I can spread a little love from you to me.
