I’m 15, halfway to 30.
Not going to lie,
It’s a little scary.
The year I was born,
and millions of lives collapsed
With it; Nothing has changed.
In fact, a dictator is growing
while over people sit and watch
being entertained at other people’s misfortunes
on so called reality.
That isn’t reality Tv.
Races and sexes are being divided,
Stereotypes are power striding,
Religions are fighting about who’s God’s best,
and newborns have no fed from breasts.
Ice bergs are melting,
and people are yelling,
not resolving a thing.
Twitter is going is crazy over Kylie’s lips,
while a ten year old girl gets a daily tip,
by a man who beats and kicks.
Genocides aren’t forgotten,
and big people say ‘We’ve been taught’
But for some reason, no one volunteers to go over and help
mothers who see their children raped.
Instead they watch the BBC and sigh
‘oh, how sad. I hope the PM does help.’
then they continue to eat their sunday roast
in safe and warmth
with no bombs flying over their heads.
They complain about how their boss hasn’t given a Christmas pay rise
while children starve and die.
Someone has lost someone.
Someone has lost their home.
Someone has lost their rights.
Someone has lost their life.
I’m 15, half way to 30.
I was born in 2001 and
well, nothing has changed.
