I Remember When

I remember when I was a child

When everyone was perfect

And everything was peaceful

Those days seem so long ago

And the delusions fade into distant memory

Now I see the backslidden fathers

And unjust mothersguiding gun toting child

I see lovers loving conditionally

If at all

I see people who hate just because they can

And those who terminate their existence

Because they don’t see another way

I see too much, I believe

For anyone to ever reconcile any glimmer

Of hope in humanity or help

From inside or the creators above

Sometimes I wonder

If we’re on a collision course with darkness

And then nothing will ever hurt us

Or them
