Magical Words


Bitterness and betrayal are magical words
That roll off the tongue so easily
They feed off each other as if they were people
And bring society together
One may wrestle with his fears
Or try to answer questions of life
But to look to deep is to sacrifice
Your pride and justification
Just look to the magical words of answers
They must be right, since we have used them for so long

Seclusion from the world
Is a common side effect of this method
But a price so small as that
Must be to good to be true
Sure if you decide to seclude you may miss the moon at night
Or the sun shining bright
But isnít it enough to be alive
When you know all the answers to life

Grief is also a by-product
Of the worlds magical words
But isnít it great when you become the grand magician
And all of your subjects are beneath you
Ready for a command
Just raise your hand and they will cheer
And vote you in another year
Youíve brainwashed their minds
To believe youíre right
And youíve taught them the magic too

One is not born with this gift
Children do not know
That the world they face
Is heading to a new phase
One where we expand the definition
Of our precious magic terms
We now include things like violence and hate
But donít look so surprised
You seem to forget
That is how societies are raised

LenMcC1,

This is well written.  certainly your point of view is different from the usual postings. I enjoyed the very last line!!!  Is it a pun?

Hi LenMcC1,

Yes the world is changing and so is the way we are able to handle everything that goes on in it but to survive is the name of the game and unfortunently some fall to the way side and if they are not strong enough to pick them selfs up they will stay lost. Very good poem, thanks for the read.
