    Ok, some of you have read my previous abominations I call poetry. Almost everything I have posted so far has been gloomy, dark and gothic. I wanted to do something different so I wrote 2 "songs" (I cannot help them, I will always call em that lol Poetry sounds to hippie) with a different theme. Enjoy.

    Corruption.

    Drowning in homemade agony
    clutching for validation and sympathy.
    Feeling so alone, you grab for that bottle again.
    Numbing the pain wont help you heal my friend.

    Help me escape to a different place
    where sadness and cruelty is not all we face
    Everywhere we look dismay is to be seen
    something beautiful must be gleamed

    Struggling to find a way out of this sadness
    corruption and greed have driven you do madness
    you exploited the poor to increase your wealth and power
    now your soul feels withered like a dead flower

    Help me escape to a different place
    where sadness and cruelty is not all we face
    Everywhere we look dismay is to be seen
    something beautiful must be gleamed

    Blind to authority you plunder and rape the land
    Torturing livestock, the soil and sea to supply their demand
    Dark storms gather as you see what you have become
    damage so severe it will nevermore be undone

    “we must strive to find a balance
    between progress and greed
    we cannot poison ourselves
    or this world any longer.”

    Help me escape to a different place
    where sadness and cruelty is not all we face
    Everywhere we look dismay is to be seen
    something beautiful must be gleamed
