We

We have so much information,

Still, we don’t understand.

We put our lives on display,

Only we’re not living.

We try to accumulate,

We try to gain,

We try to bargain

Our own conscience.

We sell ourselves

Like products,

Still, we hate being used.

We appreciate the shallow,

But we can’t recognize

Our own souls.

We pursue happiness

Using money,

We pursue dreams

That aren’t ours,

We believe

What they tell us to.

We have no freedom,

Because we don’t need it.

We like our cages,

Filled with technology

And pretty lies,

Concealing the truth.

We are decadent,

But we claim civilization.

We use religion

To start wars,

We use ignorance

To let people die of hunger.

We refuse to wake up.
