What society is

Society

The aggregate of people living together in more or less ordered community
That’s what the Internet says and that’s what most of us will believe

If you’d ask me society is more like two people talking
While looking into each others eyes
Not flickering but
Telling the truth and proudly spouting the lies
Like the game of poker
Deceiving manipulating to their own interests and gain
Not minding how less the other person will have after the game

We eat we pray we love that’s what the book says
Gluttony atheist and lust
And we have been taught not to judge the book by its cover
But face it that’s exactly what we’ve been doing

We judge starting from the color of our skin
like we don’t know how beautiful the colors of the rainbow is
We then judge what we wear
Like we don’t appreciate the flowers the trees and what mother nature is
Then we creep slowly into the personal things that would not define a person
Like your father is a murderer and that is what you’re bound to be
Just like an apple tree that would not bear a cherry

People judge because they awe the circus of social media
They applaud the lion and the whip
Telling us to follow
Making us follow inch by inch
Slowly making us slaves of what’s new and what’s old
Like your jacket that your father gave you
Once loved and worn everyday now left and gone without a memory
Of how hard your life was when you asked for it

People are people
We crave more, that’s what we are
We want the food on johns plate
even peters new toy plane
We will never appreciate what we have until they’re gone

Some people wish to see beauty through ones soul
But trust me you will not want to see them
If their soul will reflect what they look like
Because if you do
You’ll need a mirror in the ceiling and it would wake you up
Horribly in the morning that you would not need an alarm clock

And as I said
Society is two people talking while looking into each others eyes
And if you want change you need to look closely
Because the person who needs changing first is the person you see
In his eyes reflection
It’s You
