Just In Seconds
Just in seconds those kept pretentions,
Can be swept away in horrific winds.
And those teasured 'things',
One collects to maintain impressions to address...
Can be demolished quickly to leave nothing left,
As if they had never existed.
Difficult it is to live a life that is suddenly subjected
By the effects that has one facing a climate...
Oppressed overwhelmingly by depression.
And people with their biased opinions grieve,
To experience a jolt of instant reality.
With belief they can rebuild and restore delusions,
That will allow them to continue to prioritize a self interest...
Living in divisions and conflicts they've implemented,
Without learning from lessons to respect and protect...
All humanity with that as the message witnessed by disasters.
And behind them to sift through an abundance of a nothingness.
Like those accustomed to a life of hunger and homelessness.
