Sirens Over Sanctuaries

(S.o.S)


Written by: SeemsPoetic


Verse 1

We all use to be scared of the dark whether we admit it or not.

Just take a few seconds to develop your thoughts

We use to be scared of getting lost

The fear of never being found

But then we grow up and our fears are flipped upside-down

We went from being afraid of the dark,

To fearing spiders,

Then turn 16 and begin going out late,

Pulling all-nighters

Now let's just think...

Sit-back…

And realize,

Other people could be our real-de-mise

And since we're now talking bout real-life,

Let's look at who's committed the most crimes

And determine where evil sins really-have-been.

Terrorism provoked by optimism.

A race unwilling to combat conflict without bloodshed.

Unwilling in the fulfilling of world peace…

But instead

Prefer to count the number of dead

I ain't afraid of no boogie man,

I'm afraid of the rich man,

The religious man,

The army man and yes…

Even the police man,

And I know plenty of other people who also aren't a big fan

I'm terrified because I just can’t-see-why

So many people die within the borders of a country

Protected by one of the world’s strongest military.



Verse 2

You see if I become a soldier,

The boogie man may not catch me but a bullet sure can.

Fathers and sons fighting to defend from the outside world

One we think's so cold...

When children in our own schools have been on the receiving end

Of gun men.

We look at the world around us and provoke hate,

Yet demand so much peace …

Then behind a closed gate  

We advance weaponry

To greaten the casualties of our enemies...

Rather than promote farm fields in starving countries.

Think about this…

Now let's look at the sadistic statistics….

Two million seven hundred fifty-six thousand one hundred and fifty-three

That's how many human beings were killed in the in Conflicts Involving the Americans ever since the Revolutionary War happened...

Back in Seventeen Seventy-Five to the present day Isis,

Not to mention,

The one war with the most casualties and Gore

Is known to have the word Civil in it and...

Started only because we were enslaven other men

Need I say more ...

Don’t you wish we could rewind time

Talk out the problems and maybe all those people would be fine

Rather than found dead,

Counted,

Then put in a record sheet of weaponry

To create an effective deterrent against a World-War-3




Verse 3

We  all know somewhere more evil will emerge

Encourage violence

Form alliances

And then eventually overpower provinces

Before anyone deemed powerful can stop-all-this.

Now I ain’t saying humanities a monster,

And the only threat to humanity is our own lack of civility,

Even though we hide nukes like every other powerful country,

Or that every American politician emphases on the greatness of education

Yet lack willingness to lower the tuition

And instead, raises it above the workingman's paycheck.

Causing them to slave on the weekends,

Feeling tired like he’s at his weakest,

Instead of spending time working on his dreams which are now just old friends.

Or the fact everyone blames our access to guns for crimes of society And then begin to obsess

When actually

Way back when… 

Firearms were created by men

Such pointlessness

How everyone's so unserious and delirious

Over the lifelessness of our distant relatives,

Our unofficial cousins and sacred brotherin.

WE ARE ONE RACE…

The human race,

And I can honestly say that the evil of humanity

   Seems to outweigh the good when it comes to reality




Verse 4

We all may hear these words and realize them but there truly just a warning.

You see I’ve been dreaming.

That this generation makes up for humanities sins,

Not punished with pain but are rewarded for kindness,

The reward of fixed bricks of a world rather than ones broke and crumbling; Stacked in an unstable mix of pain suffering lies and tricks.

You have it in you to stay true to what is good and what is great,

All I'm asking is not to succumb to the same fate

Caused and created by the corrupt governments and dictatorships,

By racist haters and religious degrators,

The unimaginative politician,

The biased lawmen, and created by

Destructive weapons wielded by unmoral nations.

We are America

The land of the free,

Don't be afraid to be young and naive.

Let's make this the world of the free,

Rather than a world full of greed and one so full of need

But one closed off to the free will of evil….

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” Said Martin Luther King Junior.

If only people had realized his words sooner.

He is an example that one man can change the world.

Don't let a destiny created by others unfold and take hold,

Sometimes a man must first walk alone and on his own path to show simply that he can,

And remember

Life won’t get easier…

You’ll just get stronger,

Holding onto dreams a lot longer than most can ponder so let's allow

Knowledge,

Success,

and Kindness

Become the roots of our Happiness.

Because right now…

It’s just not fair you see

That all these blaring sirens

Are drowning out the sounds…

Of our sanctuary 

I sincerely hope this is only temporary...
