#PoetryLovers: Our Generation

Why do men pursue the body instead of the mind?
Go blind when their penis goes hard,
High standards, low earners,
Boy where’s your right?
And women losing themselves,
Trying to prove themselves to the ones that made them lose themselves,
Feel? Do you remember what that is?
That numbness in the centre of your chest, yes,
Making self development the main development is the only development,
The right mind makes the right decisions,
A mans ambition is the best recognition that credit is deserved,
A womans strength to rise above suppression, practice expression, make an impression,
They say money makes the world go around,
Does it whisper that sweet sound to you?
Let you know your alright,
Don’t give up that fight when you’re not alone,
But alone you are and money doesn’t change that,
Weed doesn’t change that,
You have to proceed that’ll change that,
The fact that you lay there at night with only demons in sight,
Yet the new day is bright, you gotta’ shine on,
Happiness is on the horizon,
It won’t be long…
