BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.
Did we lose the correct meaning of SOCIETY?
Did the same society forget its roles?
What happened to our generation?
Where did the rain start beating us?
You think am crazy in my thoughts?
Well, society nowadays will say am insane
Because I tend to question too much
But am sure that if I'm insane...
Then my sanity lives in insanity forever.
If this failing society calls me insane
Then it's mad itself; yes, mad..
It's crazy right? But I know I'm right
In my insanity lies bitter pills to swallow..
Because this society hates facts.
The same society that condemns abortion
Stigmatises and looks down on young single mums
The same society that campaigns against corruption
Asks you for 'kitu kidogo' everywhere
The same society that preaches faithfulness in church
Has its pastors sleeping with church members.
The same society that condemns theft
Laughs and despises street beggars
The same society whose churches preach charity
Has pastors owning mansions and private jets.
Just stop the madness in your sanity
Don't preach to me about societal values
Because no such thing exists in my world
What I see in my world;
Are insane, mad people who in their madness,
Think they are sane.
