I Don't Believe

by Gerald del Campo 2 months ago in social commentary
Report Story

Cynicism by betrayal

I don’t believe anymore

The earth will ever belong to the poor

The disenfranchised, the unemployed

The lost, forgotten or the ones deployed

I don’t believe in equal justice

Or that freedom was ever free

The lie of capitalism

Or walking the Sea of Galilee

I don’t believe that celestial peace

Will ever come to me

Man is just a hairless monkey

Swinging from a synthetic tree

But I do believe in you

And the promises that you kept

And the truths that you whispered

When you thought I slept
