Faith, where did you go?

A Poem About the Continual Bleak State of Our World

I have lost my faith,
in the human population.
It was there, once upon a time,
but now it’s a distant memory,
grown into a fairy tale I’ll
embellish for my children.
I’ll convince them I still believe,
teach them that there’s still good,
and hope they never discover
the shadow that always devours it.
We’ll never get away, we’ll never
improve, there’ll always be shit,
there’ll always be pain.
Look at the rain, open your mouth,
eating the tears of a negligent Father,
a Father who doesn’t know where
he went wrong. That is, if he exists at all.
