FOUR -- be honest

Posted to Action Poetry

Four billion starving souls,
Staring into space,
Hoping for a dime,
Hoping for a slice,
Hoping for a life,
And you buy makeup.
DonÂ’t you care?
DonÂ’t you give a fuck?

Four thousand gleaming faces,
Staring out of the screen,
Showing us the way to be,
Showing us the real world,
Showing us perfection,
And you sit and watch,
Admiring their lives,
Wishing you were one of them.

Four people who actually care,
Staring at the world,
Wanting to make things right.
Wanting to help the hurt,
Wanting to make life real again.
And they make a difference,
Fixing everything,
But three of them are lying.
