Living Asleep

Standard

Waking up to chirping birds,
A day in, day out.
The same old routine,
Nothing new,
Thinking you’re awake?

Well, maybe you’re not.

The world is in debt,
People asleep on streets,
Mothers crying, others dying,
Brothers fighting, blood flooding,
And you think you’re awake?
No, on the contrary,
You’re living asleep.

Blinded
And ignorant.
If only you knew
What life really meant.
What being awake really felt.

Peace and justice would commence.
No crying mothers and bleeding brothers.
No poverty and maybe an end to what they call wars…
There is a solution,
But the formula includes you and me
To wake up.
