Modern Life Isn’t Rubbish
How’s the 21st Century
Working out for you?
Is it meeting expectations
Or leave you feeling blue?
Do celebrities with opinions
Make you rant with rage
And the criminals with “human rights”
When they should be in a cage
Politicians sitting pretty
Whilst the workers sweat and toil
Well if this doesn’t upset you
What else would make you boil?
The lack of decent housing
Makes life difficult for the young
They can’t begin to live their lives
When their lives have already begun
How about the bankers
With criminal rates of pay
Or the terrorists who steal our lives
And preach hatred every day?
The pointless wars and killings
In the name of some religion
Does that make you sad at all
Or make you feel belligerent?
Its hard to keep a positive stance
When life is leading you a merry dance
We tend to forget the beauty within
And that, my friends, is the ultimate sin
New lives born on each new day
The wonder of nature, constantly at play
The random act of stranger kindness
Takes away the hatred blindness
Books to read of lives unknown
Music to move you and make you grow
Art and Dance and imagination
Golden Wedding celebrations
A laughing child that’s free of care
A moment lost in thoughts, we dare
To dream of pursuing unattainable lives
Away from children, lovers and wives
Falling in love and making friends
The fun and good times never end
Shared memories of all good times
Keeping tight the ties that bind
Walking barefoot along the beach
None of these things are out of reach
Its true, there’s anger everywhere
But life is good. Take time to care.
