“Show Me Your World” (Poetry)

aspiration advocate phoenix desertsong

All these years of education

They have just added to

All my heart’s frustration

More shortcomings of this nation

By simple little observations

Learned your fears, reservations,

And your recreations

But now I still have some questions

By now, I surely should know well

How and what makes you tick

Still, somehow I don’t, but

I know it all makes me quite sick

So, please, show me your world

So that I can understand

For even just a moment

To know what’s behind your reasons

Enlighten me, show me your world

~ Phoenix <3
