Where have we gone

The value of life has become less than a piece of paper

We beat, torture, steal,

All for some artificial savor

Hoping this green will let us achieve some sanity

Only to learn it just gives us vanity

And greed

And fear

And anxiety

The pursuit of money has superseded our wills to live

And anyone that becomes an obstacle suddenly becomes and enemy

Where is the soul in us?

Everything is ran through this currency

To the point that our humanity is questioned

An ocean is riddled with trash

People grow hungry in the streets

Countries are invaded and borders destroyed

All because we choose to pursue a small piece of green

And it goes away faster than we get it

How far have we come
