This poem is a stand against our goverment all we have in this life is a persue of happiness but when our so called democracy infringes on that locking our families, our children, and our loves away for the same crimes that are committed by our own police officers and judges, because they were not born into money and the last name, locked away like animals in a diseased prison system i think its time to take a stand addiction is an american epidemic and we need help not to be broken and distroyed give these people a chance!
(no "flaiming" please, this is an opinion not meant to stand against our nation, but for it. im not trying to offend this )

GENERATION

A whole new Generation

With alot of complication

A step up in evolution

Finally fed up and done

Lives growing in hate

The helping hand just too late,

Childrens eyes locked on technology

Exploiting death, violence, and pornography.

What a great generation

When we lost our constitution

So much money paid to the GOVERNMENT

While Thousands of illgal immigrants steal our employment.

 Making it so hard for the COMMON AMERICAN

Even though we are trying as hard as we can

 

statue cries "give me your tired, hungry and poor!"

It is US who are TIRED, HUNGRY and POOR any more...

 The ugly monsters of WAR

Had so much but just want more

So much  b l o o d  it has stained the earth,

Mother nature is sorry she gave birth

To the creatures that destroyed her song

Grinding her teeth at the nuclear bomb

 News leading us blindly through lies

screening the truth not meant for our eyes

DRUGS the new world policy

looking the other way while they're shipped to our country

 Smiles when we pretend we are free,

It's formed our democracy

 There are more arrests for drugs than any other crime

we're all addicts, Innocents is doing time

1,600,000 arrests just for addiction each year,

but LEADING IN DEATH tabacco and beer!

 

All illegal drugs put together

Could not add up to the deaths smoke has gathered!

I THOUGHT WE COULD HAVE A SAY!

When 1 in 3 Americans have or do drugs today!

 They have made this place a PRISON,

Everyone's a criminal in our justice system!

The jails are just to filled,

All about to overspill

Potheads filling the jails throughout!

SO WHO THE HELL ARE THEY LETTING OUT?!

Now do you see a reason to STAND UP and SHOUT?

Concider the perverts and murderers walking the streets,

While we watch our victims swallow their defeats

Then we wonder why

Every 18 minutes someone will DIE

Because of SUICIDE

Each year 730,000 suicide attempts are made

Where has the HOPE gone in this escapade?

Doesent anyone wonder whats wrong?

When lonlieness SCREAMS for just far to long?

As a killer suicide rates 11th place

Homicide is 14th facts with a cold hard case

MORE PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES THAN EACH OTHER

Teen suicide rate has tripled in number

people need help maybe a friend

A SMILE, a hello, someone to remember in the end

But instead they recieve a cold heart

did tgey have a chance from the start?

wont anyone tell them its okay?

a kind word is all you need to say

But you stare at me Blankly

OFFER ME NOTHING

Even with all the facts i bring

Hide behind your power and athority

BUT YOU WAIT AND SEE

BECAUSE THIS NEXT GENERATION IS ME
