My Insane Society

Author:

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.
