Over the deprived emotions
When everything runs against us
And, because of someone we love
Our happiness become sorrow,
Under the weight of our shadow
We stand lamenting the fate, created,
By people we trust so much in life
Befuddled and confronted with pain
The fingers we point at those who cause it.
Human nature intrinsically sick at times
In expectations life is motioned daily,
Failing to see dreams fulfilled
Hatred we raise in place of love
Because we think we know
The ones we love
Until usurped by their selfishness
We smear oil on our palms
And try to climb life’s pole.
We think we know
The ones we love,
Whom we know not
Whether we truly love.
