The Daunting Society We Live In

The Daunting Society


The story of exterior crust

I choose not to trust

As they are full of illiberal minds

And hate there own kinds

They’ll control the lives

With their mistaken minds

And shower their judgment

Without our consent

I’m afraid to say

That’s the SOCIETY we stay

Where we don’t find a way

But just to became a prey

They examine us so closely

And create our stories loathly

They love to talk about your age

And laugh at you offstage

They talk about your hair

And smile you wear

They talk about job you do

And the money you earn too

And that’s the SOCIETY we live in

The society wants to change us

With the harsh verbal fuss

They’ll tear us down

And still expect not to frown

They’ll tell us how to talk

And what to speak

And to have a great physique

The society decides what to wear

And nag me

When I do what they cannot bear

They pick out on weak

And talk about strong who speak

They teach a girl

How to sit and walk

But never tell them what to do

When being stalked

All the society do is talk about colour, body, religion, culture and cast

They enjoy tattling our past

They give us numerous invisible wounds

And fake it to cry at burial grounds

But now

It is the time to realise that this is wrong

And let the people sing peace song

Because peace is where we belong

Don’t judge anyone if they don’t fit in your way

Except them with hands splay

Words of Wisdom

“The more a society drifts from the truth,

The more it will hate those that speak it.”
