Soon

Common sense is not alive.
Not like it was,
In those days gone by.
Too many today have paid their visits,
With a foolishness to get themselves...
Credited to loans and borrowed sorrows.

Common sense has tried hard to survive,
Bling and its affects.
Bringing with it tears.
And such embarrassing regrets.

Statistics shows,
So many lost their minds sold.
To easy living with a wanted warm breeze.
Statistics shows,
Many carry burdened loads.
Too heavy on their shoulders.
Strapped so tight to impressions made,
Letting go has left many afraid.

But soon...
People will demand.
And soon...
A life to live no one commands.
Soon...
People will awaken to wish,
Less grand living,
With a basicness to get.

Common sense has tried hard to survive,
Bling and its affects.
Bringing with it tears.
And such embarrassing regrets.
But soon...
People will not put up with this.
Wanting for themselves,
A shown and proven happiness.

Soon...
People will demand.
And soon...
A life to live no one commands.
Soon...
People will awaken,
With less wishes to be grand.
Wanting for themselves to live,
A life they control and also understand...
Can be lived without debts to pay in tears,
Flowing to fill...
Several emptied buckets and found cans.

Common sense is not alive.
Not like it was,
In those days gone by.
Too many today have paid their visits,
With a foolishness to get...
Credited to loans and borrowed sorrows.
Without a happiness returned to get.
