Soul Fire

By Soulfire

My Soul is filled with a burning fire
One that tests my power and desire
I long to scream into the world "look at what we have created"
Yet no one can hear me, we've long been sedated
-------------------------------------------------
I turn on my television to something called the Swan
Women willingly butcher their face...what the fuck is wrong?
We are creating unattainable beauty
Corporate pigs say we need good television, this is it, and that is their duty
Fuck that and fuck those money hungry worms
I have had enough and now it is my turn
-------------------------------------------------
I propose a REVOLUTION
Stand up, speak out, and fight for a solution
Make it known that our world is shit
DO NOT TUNE IN to their number one "hit"
By watching, we are perpetuating the cycle of trash
Since Survivor it has spread like a rash
------------------------------------------------
Change the channel or walk away
Because, believe it or not, you're being led astray
Why should we be carbon copies of the same Barbie doll
Buy in just once, and one by one we begin to fall

    Very true, though the solution is harder to realize than you may think. But, try we must. Good poem, makes you think. ~ Asheai
