Is It Just Me

Is It Just Me?                                                                                                                                                     9/18/20


Is it just me?

Or has this whole world gone crazy?

I’m finding it hard to breathe

From the lack of oxygen in the air.


Is it just me?

Or has stupidity become a disease?

Common sense is a foreign word

People going through life with their eyes closed.


Is it just me?

Or is it easier to hate then to love?

My life matter more than yours

Racism used as a tactic, a justification.


Is it just me?

Or are we all lost in a world?

Where the sun doesn’t  even have a chance to shine

Where hard work is rewarded by vandalism.


Is it just me?

Or is history being rewritten?

You offer no value if your opinion is different than mine

Shut up and remain silent, or else.


Is it just me?

Or do you feel the same?

Do you feel a sense of panic for children?

Is the world on fire?


Or is it just me?

It isn’t just you. Truthfully, there has been a decline in all areas. I’m afraid, as you have said, the world is on fire. Thankfully there are still people left on the ready to fight the flames back. I worry for the children too. Nicely expressed Jeff.
