The Great Deception

wakeupcallI woke up today
Surrounded by madness
It’s never enough
Consumerism sadness
Driving the world
Promising happiness
Buying these things
To cover the darkness
Leaving a trail
That’s empty and callous
Hungry for more
We search for wholeness
Out in the world
Getting lost in the process
Refusing to look
Inward for greatness
Discovering in ourselves
The courage to face this.

    Yes! Inward for greatness…

  • Joe Lalonde

    Funny how we search for external things to fill us. They’ll only temporarily fill the emptiness.

    • Cole Bradburn

      Agreed, and maybe even create a larger void.
