The glitter and the shame
The wow and the woe
The wants and the needs
Do we even know?

Covered in gems that weigh us down
Chasing the trends that never last

The more we huger, the more we fall
Only to find that nothing last at all
So what are we chasing, what are we doing?

Does this ever end?
What has humanity become?
I am disgusted
Myself included
Living in such a materialistic society, I am amazed at the extent people will go just to get what they want. A hunger that can never be satisfied.  I fear that I will be like this one day. Loving the world more than I should...
