Wrong turn

Has society taken a wrong turn

Is there something we can learn,

From the viciousness printed by the press

To the sick trolls on the internet,

Who hide behind their computer screens

And post sick twisted things which are obscene,

In forms of posts and memes.

Meanwhile the media divides

With it’s xenophobic cries,

Full of hate and discriminatory

I want you to love not hate me,

Is this way to much to ask

That kindness and compassion should last

But anger and negativity is easier to muster and to feel,

Quick to rise deep inside and takes no thought,

So no intellectual reprises needed

Which is no supprise at all.

Why I ask do people think it’s ok to disrespect other people

In so many different ways

And if you met those who act in these sick displays,

Tend to be strangely normal by day,

When out of their bedrooms or their dark basements they come,

From their safe zone to carry out harassment

But interesting journalist who are often

Public school and university educated,

Have no excuse for their intellectual displacement,

Reporting and participating in fake and divisive news,

Trashing people’s reputations

And subjecting them to abuse,

As ordered by their oligarchy muse

Who shape the stories to direct and control societies views.

Where has our free and independent press gone

Seems now that ideal is truly now bygone.

The challenge for us who are not this way

Is to bring about a real change,

That steers people intellectually and spiritually away,

From the viciousness of hate,

To bring about a society where people care and share

And shine love and light there,

As an example of whats true and right

To make this future hopeful and bright,

So we can celerbrate the power and the might,

Of standing up for liberty and people’s rights,

To be who and what they choose to be,

To live lives and hold beliefs in a society where they are free

And where people understand the ability

To use the internet to connect,

Learn to understand different cultures and creeds

And be able to share beliefs and become more tolerant

When they see that as one humanity,

That we are all different and yet still unique

And where we can grow spiritually,

Into to better people ultimately.
