This is the world we live in 

When lies and opinions 

Permeate our news sources 

This is the world we live in 

When we can easily disregard 

Mental health issues as if they were fake 

This is the world we live in 

When we compare our lives to others 

Based off of glorified social media pics

This is the world we live in 

When college students are taught 

That the world is better but we are blind 

This is the world that we live in 

Our noses up to debt 

But no decent job or salary in sight 

This is the world we live in 

When we can burn people based on 

The color of their skin 

This is the world we live in 

When the government watches our 

Every move and conversation 

This is the world we live in 

When we are faced with nuclear weapons 

But refuse to admit they exist 

This is the world we live in 

Generating so much waste 

Toxic for our skin and for our water 

This is the world we live in. 

Only the peaceful days that pass us by 

Full of family and laughter  

Can be my salvation
