What we are. A sad excuse.
We are self important.

We are naive.

We are idiotic.

These are no excuses

for the terrible things we do.

Time passes and change happens,

but that doesn't mean our values should.

What happened to us?

Have carnal pleasures, violence,

and mind changing substances consumed us.

People throw away love for sex.

People throw away lives for violence.

People throw away their own life for hurtful substances.

This happened before, but not as much as now.

Prostitutes providing relief.

Web sites depicting death provide entertainment.

Mind changing substances provide escape.

Can we as a society accept this?

Or are we to the point where morals are abolished?

Even if we do something good,

its only for self interest.

Why do we let this go on?

Because we don't care.

We honestly don't.

This world is a sad site.

A species given a chance to be more than normal,

but we squander it for entertainment.

For sick happiness.

We should be ashamed.

Only hope the next generations change something,

because this is not right.
