Get Real

July 12, 2015


It's not enough

to say you


feel good


as this feel good revolution has taught us to do


through positive thought



What if hurting someone

makes you feel good


what then


What if 

feeling good

makes you blind to another person's pain


You can't feel the feelings of another

so their feelings are irrelevant to your own person


But what if you were 



what then


If you could feel their suffering

would you feel more compassion


We are entrenched in a system

charlatans have thoughtfully designed

to keep us deaf, dumb, numb and blind


Inspirational talks are wonderful

they make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside

but they don't change the system from the inside


People are starving

Wars are raging

Banks and Corporations are ruling

We are losing more and more of our freedoms


while we chase mindless nothings

hopeless, empty dreams


You can pretend it isn't happening -

that this fragile world isn't collapsing

that the enviornment isn't hurting

species aren't facing extintion

human rights aren't diminishing


Or you can open to the discomfort and bad feelings

of the real situation


Our honoured -Democracy- isn't working
