The front page screams ‘read me’ but contains no news,

Special interest stories without an audience

If everyone is special, then no one truly is.

Blind selfishness and greed, conceit and lies

Telling a false tale to a false public

In hopes of finding that audience who pays.

 

Attention is money, money is power

Who’s in control of the ever hungry machine?

Running rampant through society, devouring

Innocence, happiness and virtue.

No control is chaos, controlled chaos more power.

A cycle that has no beginning, no end…

 

That is the wave of the future.

 

To believe is to hope

To hope, to live

To live, to breathe

To breathe, to speak;

 

Communication is true power, connection

Between peoples, individually to achieve

Peace, wealth and prosperity

And overcome fear.

Never one person, but people are key

To survival.
